Description

The newly planted Brookdale Park trees that were conceived to be a sound border from the dog park, are all dying of thirst. Most Brookdale Park green thumbers are scratching their heads, wondering what the heck the county was thinking by planting trees and shrubs under much larger trees that denies their smaller cousins from much needed rain. Indeed after 2 weeks of planting, most of the trees are already stressed from lack of water. An informal count of 127 such trees and shrubs were planted without any access to a water source. As one news program declares, "Its Your Money"--and the incompetence is maddening too! One would have thought the natural sound barrier the county was planning would have been planted adjacent to the dog park fence, which has a much open area for rainfall, and would have provided a visual barrier to the garish cyclone doggie fence.
