On the morning of Friday, June 10, a capable crew of Inman Park neighbors, together with some Trees Atlanta recruits, rallied in support of Springvale Park.
The goal was to remove invasive Japanese chaff flower and to thin out some of the saplings that are threatening to turn Springvale Park into a jungle.
Thanks go to Sandi and Kevin Curry, Karen Heim, Alan Hing, Nancy and Bob Morrison, Sam Prausnitz-Weinbaum, Cindy Weinbaum, Peipei Xiang, and Jim Abbot, as well as Trees Atlanta staffer Louie Lewis and his volunteers Myrtle Lewin, Jasen Johns, Grace, Nicole, and Christina.
Some of our wonderful trees along Freedom Park can now breathe a bit easier, due to the work of these fantastic volunteers! We cut and pulled vines, cleared away invasive ground cover, and even dug up some Japanese chafflower!
Thank you as always to our partner Trees Atlanta, represented today by forest restoration specialist Alyssa Killingsworth.
I’ll bet you didn’t know that Inman Park Tree Watch has a sideline in emergency cleanup of pocket parks! Actually, it’s not hard when some hardworking, enthusiastic, fun-loving neighbors pitch in to help.
