City to Prune Neighborhood Street Trees This Year!

Sycamore on Southern Edge

Earlier this week neighborhood resident Carol Wise attended two evenings of training provided by City Forester Lee Huss.  As a result she is now one of several volunteer City of Bloomington Tree Rangers.  Any questions about trees?  Please consider Carol as a resource.

During the training Carol learned that Lee Huss will be trimming the trees along Countryside Lane later this spring.  Carol says, “We are so fortunate  to have this certified arborist do that for us.  We won’t even have to clean up the branches he removes.  Several days following the pruning, the trimmings will be picked up and taken away by the City.”

The north side of Sunflower Gardens, Countryside Lane, is part of many school bus routes. For safety reasons the City makes an effort to keep those streets from getting overgrown.
