Stephenson ten mile, Royal Oak, Michigan
since nearly all the tree plantings in the S. end are unsuccessful I sent an email to r.o..per email response below property owners were asked to water them.well how can an apartment dweller water 5 trees on ten mile? 4 are long gone,left standing.I watched the landscapers literally run from planting 1 to another-hastily to say the least.is this the "canopy" the mayor so boisterously spoke about months ago?remember this neglect Nov.7.quote; "Per the Planning Department, which was in charge of contracting for the tree plantings in the south end of the city, residents that had a tree planted were notified that they would need to water the trees on a regular basis. It is natural for the trees to be stressed because of being planted, and the hotter than normal weather is probably affecting them also. We consider an 85% survival rate good based on the number of trees planted. Thank you for your concern. " who knew???
