~ Who We Are ~
We have all chosen to live in a landscape that says a lot about us. This is a place whose sidewalks, boulevards and parks connect us to our neighbors. This place is designed to create friendships with those who are living, that honors those who came before us, and that preserves a way of life for the next generation.
The Old North End trees have sheltered us for 100 years, but scores of trees along Wahsatch, Cascade, Nevada and Wood Avenues were at the end of their lives, and had to be felled. The loss of 100 dead and dying trees, as with the loss of anything we have loved, can be dismaying.
Take heart! The North End Woodlands project, formed in November 2016, has been vigorously working to restore our urban canopy, and with your open-handed contributions of money and time, 105 replacement trees are now planted. We estimate that an additional 70 trees are needed to “infill” the medians where trees were removed and not replaced over many years, restoring the median’s majesty.
Thankful beyond measure,
~ Your Woodlanders ~
