Trees: Bloor CIA and Bloordale new trees – suggestions/information re Bloor CIA program to help. Maple trees having difficulty, concern about survival.
Three species of trees were planted along Bloor. The Elm and Locust trees are very doing well. However, the Maples trees appear to lack water. Urban Forestry is doing its best to water all trees, but assistance would be very beneficial. If Bloordale CIA, individual businesses, residents and the BIA are willing to water the new trees (especially, the Maple trees, see photo), this would be a BIG help to guarantee their survival. (Urban Forestry suggests watering the trees twice per week with 2 piles of water (5 gallons) if no rain is scheduled.) Again, Urban Forestry is watering the trees, and any assistance would further benefit the new trees.
