Trees and Sidewalks

What the heck?

Yep, arborist Chris Hughes of Brookwood Tree Consulting was in the ‘hood yesterday. He was here at the invitation of Inman Park Tree Watch, in order to assess several trees in the path of our upcoming sidewalk renovation projects.

Here’s Chris with Peter Coyne of Oakview Landscape Construction, at the base of a lovely, mature American elm on Euclid Avenue. The goal? Get this sidewalk work done with minimal to no impact on nearby trees.

With guidance from Hughes and drawing on deep experience working around our trees in Inman Park, Coyne is able to pull all sorts of tricks from his sleeve: bridging over roots, skirting around them, and so on.

We’re so lucky to have professionals like Hughes and Coyne working in Inman Park! And we’re proud to have a thoughtful program in place to ensure that we do everything possible to protect the health and prolong the lives of our street trees.
