North City Park - Help Restore North City …11/13/2022

Activities

You can help save some of the North City Park trees by removing ivy that is growing up tree trunks and creating survival rings around the base of the trees. Left in place to grow the ivy can increase the risk of the trees being blown over in windstorms because of its large mass and “sail effect” of the vines in the canopy. Also, tree bark is more likely to have disease and rot problems and the tree health can be damaged by reduced access to light when the vines cover the tree’s branches.
You also could choose to spend some time on Sunday spreading mulch in the restoration sites recently planted to help improve the soil health and support root growth of our young plants.
