Larchmont Chronicle Article – July 2006

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

The following is the Windsor Square Association monthly column published in the Larchmont Chronicle, written by WSA Board Member Margaret Hudson.

Windsor Square Parkway Trees

Summer is here so don’t forget to water your recently planted parkway trees. Also, do not allow weed whackers, lawn mowers and other tools to ever touch the trunks of your young trees. A small cut or bruise to the trunk from one of these tools can kill your new trees, as can be seen from a few examples in our neighborhood. Keep a grass-free well around your trees.

Do not remove or plant trees without first consulting Windsor Square Canopy. Canopy will arrange the entire process for you. If you are in a particular hurry please contact as soon as possible. It is illegal to remove or plant trees without a city permit. It is also illegal to plant a non-designated tree at any time.

Please see the Windsor Square Master Plan of Parkway Trees for trees legally designated for your block: http://www.windsorsquare.org/pdf/Master_Tree_Plan.pdf. More information can be obtained by reading The Windsor Square Tree Information Packet: http://www.windsorsquare.org/pdf/Tree_Packet_Pamphlet.pdf and by visiting the Windsor Square Canopy web page: http://www.windsorsquare.org/canopy.htm.

All tree related requests including removals, replacements and plantings, disease, or other parkway tree issues should be emailed to canopy@windsorsquare.org.
