Neighborhood Meeting on Trees in Porter Square

Submitted by on October 16, 2018 – 1:47 pmNo Comment

Join our neighbors in Porter Square to discuss the state of the neighborhood’s tree canopy.

Porter Square Neighbors Association Meeting on TREES!
Thursday, October 18, 7:00-9:00 pm
Lesley University Hall
1815 Mass Ave, Rm 2-078

Porter Square has been identified as one of the city’s heat islands. Mass Ave—a main thoroughfare for cars, buses, bikes, and pedestrians—is an increasingly hot corridor. Street trees help reduce that heat! Many of us share the vision of a shady Mass Ave and are interested in doing what we can to improve our tree canopy and our planet.

We have invited staff from the Urban Forestry department to join us, to help us understand what the city is doing and what we can do. We will learn about:

The scope and condition of the urban forest in the city
What the city is doing to maintain our forest and expand it

Plans for Mass Ave from Porter to the Arlington Line
The Adopt-A-Tree program and how residents and businesses can support the city’s efforts to help our trees thrive

Please join us with your questions and ideas!
