New Trees for Acres Homes


Dear Acres Homes Community Residents:

In our ongoing effort to revitalize the Acres Home community, we have planted a total of 449 trees throughout the community.

Not only does planting trees enhance the community's visual attractiveness, it also offers a sense of peacefulness, relaxation and builds neighborhood character for future generations. Trees also help protect the environment by absorbing large amounts of storm water runoff. When properly placed and cared for, they can significantly increase your property values.

We welcome any support you or your neighborhood organizations can give to help us maintain our progress. If you see a tree that is being poorly maintained or needs special attention, please report it to 3-1-1.

We are targeting for planting five areas within Acres Homes. They are:

W. Montgomery/Granville - Wilberforce (Area 1)

-- Placed on seven medians

-- Plant fifty-nine, 30 gallon trees

-- Plant fifty-four, 45 gallon trees

Wheatley (Ella) Granville - Wiberforce (Area 1)

-- Placed on five medians

-- Plant one hundred forty-nine, 30 gallon trees

-- Plant eleven, 45 gallon trees

Victory/Virgil W. to Carver (Area 3)

W. Montgomery/Victory-Esther (Area 3)

Thank you,

Bill White
