From Alli Alligood:
Thank you so much to the 75+ folks who came out last Saturday morning to help take care of our trees at Libby Hill Park! The tree trimming, mulching, and sidewalk cleanup will help prepare our trees and our park for for all the bike race visitors we expect this fall.
It was so wonderful to have the skilled hands of so many of our City’s professional arborists from True Timber, Arborscapes and Davey Tree who gave their time and expertise to really get into some of the trees to prune and shape and just generally show some love.
It was equally great to have Tree Stewards from across the city join in to help those of us who live in the neighborhood and were able to take time to give back to a place that gives us some much every day. Special thanks as well for our municipal arborists Luke McCall and Mike Mather who spent the morning with us and assisted greatly in the effort.
The event was in part a celebration of the life of our friend huge lover of our urban forest, Dave Tate, who’s no longer with us.
Many thanks to Beauchamp Payne and her team for delicious homemade soups and treats, that really kept us going. And also to the folks at True Timber and Arborsapes for the yummy doughnuts and pizza for all the workers and other friends who stopped in to visit.
So much to love on Church Hill, so glad to be a part of it. Thanks y’all!
