The LRA is transplanting a number of mature trees from the First Avenue berm to the south side of First Avenue and to a new park within the Boulevard One site. The varieties include honey locust and Austrian pines. Planting along First Avenue near Newport Street will continue into December.
A full-time contractor is hand-watering existing trees throughout the Boulevard One site, including lindens, ash, crabapples, ponderosa pine, blue spruce and scotch pines. These trees will be either transplanted or kept in place. More than 2,500 new trees will be planted in parks and tree lawns at Boulevard One.
