Work Proposal for McLaughlin and BHUW
Dennis Pultinas is applying for a grant for controlling invasives and planting native species at these sites. About 15 years ago there was a major effort to diversify the tree population at these sites. The majority of plantings have thrived. However, invasive Norway and Sycamore maples have begun to dominate the canopy at several sites. These, along with the explosive growth of bitter sweet and wild grape vines, will be addressed in the plan of work. Shagbark hickory, white oak, and swamp white oak, red and pin oak will be planted. The work will be signed off on by the Boston Parks Dept. A walk around with Paul Sutton, the special sites coordinator, is being arranged. Please contact Dennis if you’re interested in coming on the walk.
