If you’ve been out at 6 a.m. recently you may have seen the city watering the newer trees in Ramsey Park. Using reclaimed water, they place six buckets (with lots of holes) around each tree to help ensure the correct amount of water is delivered to the tree drip line. Given our current relapse back into drought, and our love of a shady park, the neighborhood owes a big “Thanks!” to the city. One way we can do that, and help ourselves, is to sign up to help plant new trees and mulch existing trees on November 21th. During the event, from 9 a.m. to noon, we will plant 30 new trees and mulch many of the mature trees. The event is a collaboration between the City of Austin Urban Forestry Program and the Rosedale Neighborhood Association. Sign up today to say Thanks! to the city and to help improve our jewel of the Rosedale neighborhood.
