Sidewalk removal in progress under the Auction Oaks

Environmental Design is back at work at Republic Square peeling back the sidewalks and flatwork so Bartlett Tree Experts can pull out their air spades and start doing route mapping and Terracon can come in and do test borings for the Phase 2 proposed deck as well. The good news is we’re not seeing any roots right under the sidewalk areas, but we’ll see what we find after Bartlett starts the air spade work.

We’re also working to revise our plans to plant replacement trees instead of transplanting the four street trees that that we had planned to move but cannot since they are poor transplant candidates (their root systems are very fragile)

Barring heavy rain (which would, we admit, be a welcome addition) we should see some good progress this week. Stay tuned for further updates.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
