Heights Forestry Program gives update to Memorial Park forestry plan
The Heights Forestry Program recently gave an update to its Memorial Park forestry plan.
According to the press release, "As many of you have noticed, the reforestation effort in our beloved park is in full swing. Memorial Park Conservancy, in coordination with Houston Parks and Recreations Department, has successfully removed thousands of dead and hazardous trees killed by the drought. In addition, a large area of the park has been treated to control invasive species, including Chinese tallow and waxleaf ligustrum. As for the most important question: are we ready to plant trees? Yes we are. We plan to plant about 50 acres this year and will continue the site preparation and planting next year and in the years to come. It is a lengthy endeavor because a healthy forest needs trees of different ages and species, and the result will be a beautiful, renewed park we all can use and treasure. The Forestry Program is funded through contributions to MPC from generous individuals, businesses and foundations in the Houston area."
