Help needed at 23rd and Fairmount Avenue!

I am writing inquiring about trees that are overgrown that could possibly be hazardous to the congregation and Structure at 23rd and Fairmount Ave.

Tenth Baptist has a rich heritage on 23rd street for over 70 years. As elderly members are confined to wheelchairs, entering the church has become hazardous as a result of overgrown trees with broken limbs that spontaneously fall onto the roof and the ground. In addition, there is not a sidewalk, which makes entering the sanctuary another challenge for the community.

Our Congregation is excited about the advancements that are transpiring in our East End Neighbor revitalization, but we need help figuring out how to fix this?

We are asking the community: Would you assist us in getting the trees taken down and getting a sidewalk installed? Also, can you share with us any resources available to build a strong and healthy community?

Getting a sidewalk installed should be on the city. I’m repeatedly amazed that there are blocks in this neighborhood that have never had sidewalks put in after more than a century.

Thank you for the post. First of all, you will need to contact the City. A tree inspection may be requested by calling the City’s Customer Care Center at 3-1-1. If a tree is creating a hazard it can be trimmed. (As Richmond Tree Stewards, we help the City as volunteers, but by looking at Google Maps, look to me these trees are too tall for us, we are not using any big tools, we stay on the ground and we only use tools like poles). It’s true they are some inconveniences for a tree to exist. We understand this,… Read more »

Trees fall on people and kill them, tree roots destroy home foundations and pipes, trees fall on cars and homes causing financial burdens. Think this is anti-tree it isn’t, it’s just the flip side of the coin to post 4. It’s kinda of ridiculous that i got prove from an engineer that roots from a tree growing on city property are harming my home’s foundation and the one arborist the city has says we can’t cut down the tree, but once the damage is fully done to my home I can take the city to court.
