We had a productive meeting on Tuesday after a brief hiatus. In attendance were Maureen, Emily, Dallen, and Julie. Thanks! We missed everyone else.
Here’s a brief summary. I’ve used green to indicate action items with the name of the person responsible underlined.
We have a Pruning Workshop scheduled for Saturday January 27
Mason has left Urban Forestry so we need to confirm that this is still on the schedule. We may need to assist UF with the following:
- Flyer Design
- Flyer Posting
- Identifying a target pruning area
- Securing a meeting location
Julie will contact Nick to confirm the workshop is scheduled, ask what type of support UF needs, and see if there are options for other workshops.
Maureen will contact Van to see if he has pruning location suggestions.
Heritage Tree Nomination
The next round of nominations are due on May 1st 2018. Sabin only has one heritage tree so that is our priority.
Julie checked out the Sabin School Gingkoes and feels they may be too damaged for nomination. The Coast Redwood might still be a possibility. Dallen recalled that we might need approval for nomination from above the school students/staff level
Julie will check back in with the school.
All: If you have nomination ideas in Sabin let the Tree Team or Julie know. Our current idea is Sabin school trees which dovetails nicely with putting together a school-oriented tree walk. Private properties are OK the trees just need to be visible from the ROW.
Emily suggested that we do a tree walk in lieu of a meeting after daylight savings. GREAT IDEA! We will revisit this as spring approaches and pick a date.
NEXT MEETING: Tuesday January 2, 2017 7:00 to 8:00pm Whole Foods, NE 15th and Fremont, dining area.
