|A new report on the oaks at Bush Park|
If you are interested in the natural history of Bush Park, it's worth checking out.
Not at all related to Bush Park, but very much to our general approach to trees, it was interesting earlier this month to notice the young Oaks on South Commercial at Firehouse Crossing, just south of Hilfiker. (Here's a streetview from 2016, shortly after they were planted - they are much smaller!)

This does not seem like a very good instance of matching tree to site. More shade here would be wonderful from street trees, but different varieties might have been better - especially if these do not turn out to be some kind of dwarf Oak variety!
Commercial Street badly needs more trees, but this seems like a missed opportunity for lasting and healthy trees.
