Getting Street Trees where they are needed the most.

20 Minute Tree

A crew of men showed up in front of our house this morning with two enormous trucks carrying machinery, tools and trees!


In just over 20 minutes they had neatly prepared a hole in the lawn, placed an 8 foot Prairie Sentinel Hackberry and covered the roots with earth and mulch, swept up, and were on their way to the next address. 


This was the free street tree I ordered online from the City of Hamilton Street Tree program last summer. I missed out on the fall planting so had to wait for this spring to have it planted. It was a nice way to spend this beautiful morning, with my coffee and a new tree in the front yard.
