In addition to the many trees planted at Anderson Park, Westborough
Park, and the Service Blake Soccer Complex during Arbor Week, Urban
Forestry made many other new landscape improvements around town this
spring. The Kelly median between 15th and 33rd St. was redesigned and
replanted to improve the look of the existing landscape beds, replace
dead trees, and to deal with some ongoing maintenance issues.
New landscaping in the Kelly median.
We also had the opportunity to save some great trees and plant them
in the Chowning median. Nine very large yaupon hollies were relocated
from a site being demolished in downtown Edmond. While there is always a
risk with transplanting large plants, most of the hollies are adjusting
well to their new home. Chowning Ave. is just east of UCO’s football
stadium. Keep an eye on the area as we continue to implement further
phases of the overall landscape plan for this median.
