MNA Street Tree Planting 2005


Tree Fourteen new street trees provided by Our City Forest now enhance our neighborhood. Twelve Murdock families worked alongside representatives from Volunteer Tree Amigos and Conservation Corps to plant the trees on Saturday, March 5. Four species were planted: magnolia, Chinese pistache, Autumn purple ash and flowering pear. In some cases, the work was done totally by the volunteers to aid the elderly. As part of the agreement, residents will water and weed and monitor the stakes on their trees. All homes in the Murdock neighborhood without a street tree were offered the opportunity to participate in this project, which was organized by MNA Board Member Doris Livezey.
