Two trees to be replaced at Town Green

Despite our best efforts at proper planting and maintenance, two of the live oaks at the Town Green will be replaced in the coming days/week. The live oaks have been in decline for some time due to a variety of reasons but it basically boils down to transplant shock. This shock is due to a large percentage (up to 90 percent) of the trees' root system remaining at the nursery when the tree is dug. Transplant shock occurs to all field-grown trees which are dug from a nursery and planted in a new site.
