New Trees for Old

Our historic landscape restoration in the Victorian-era portion of Oak Grove Cemetery is one of the current Community Preservation projects funded by a Preserve Medford grant. This week, we went with an arborist from a local landscaping company to survey dead trees, stumps and the empty spaces where trees once stood, and to make a plan for what could be replaced and when.

[ Our goal, to replace dead and dying trees in Rock Pasture of the Oak Grove Cemetery, has been merged with the ongoing work of TreesMedford, who have also applied to the Community Preservation Commission/Preserve Medford for support to undertake a large-scale, professional tree survey in the cemetery, a preliminary phase to further landscape restoration there. ]
