City to Remove Dead Trees

July 30, 2016
By

Nearly 50 dead trees throughout Beacon Hill are expected to be removed this week and next by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, according to Max Ford-Diamond, Tree Maintenance General Foreman. And he’s let us know which ones by providing a tree maintenance list of the addresses abutting each tree.

That list is now posted on www.beaconhillcivic.org. and Miguel Rosales, Beacon Hill Civic Association Tree Committee Chair, is asking residents to check it thoroughly. “If you find that a tree will be removed at your address, and if the tree guard has a removable panel, please remove the panel to avoid damage by the contractor,” he said. “After the new tree is planted, the guard can be reinstalled.”

Rosales also urged residents to become more active with respect to helping neighborhood trees grow strong and healthy by watering them during the dry summer months and keeping their dogs away from the tree pits. “Note that the Parks Department will replace dead trees this fall and next spring, but they will not maintain or water them on a regular basis.”
