Where’s My Tree?

050909-street-4

It’s been about a year since I applied for (and sent in a check–which has been deposited) for a tree from the City to be placed in an empty tree well in front of my house. But still no tree. They claim they like to plant between November-March so that the tree can get rooted during a less strenuous season. That window is closing (has closed?). So what’s the deal? It’s great that the city (and the Fan District) support shade tree replacement in the Fan, but the execution is poor. My neighbor bought two trees at Lowes and a got a couple of TreeGators a couple of years ago. Seems like that approach (like many things that involve Richmond City government) is more efficient.
