Volunteers who helped replant Maple Ave.

Replanting Maple Ave.

Maple Avenue was the tree commission's showpiece project for 2014. The city matched an anonymous donation to purchase over 30 containerized trees, most of which went to line both sides of Maple Avenue after street upgrade took down all of the mature trees there. The new trees were a variety of Sun Valley maple, Hornbeam and Hophornbeam, Royal Raindrops Flowering Crab, Redbud, Kwanzan Cherry - all small to medium sized trees at maturity.

A dozen or so hardy volunteers teamed up to get the trees in the ground on October 18th, and with care and good cooperation from the weather, the street will be looking green and beautiful again in a few years! The tree commission would like to get more streets looking like this, so if you want more trees on your street, talk with your neighbors, and then contact the city. We can plant one street a year, and individual trees where people would like them.

Thanks to the Mt. Healthy High School and the University of Cincinnati students who joined neighbors to plant trees. We thoroughly had a good time, and were fortified by delicious home made sweet breads made by Nicole Chenault and delicious award-winning chili made by Sandy Young. Thanks to all who helped out!
