CapeGazette.com - Rehoboth approves bid for tree canopy project:
The Rehoboth Beach commissioners unanimously approved a bid by Davey Resource Group of Ohio to conduct a tree inventory of all public trees within the city.
The city received a $15,000 grant from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to conduct the study. The city’s building and licensing department will oversee the inventory.
Bryan Hall, of the Office of State Planning Coordination, said the work is time sensitive for two reasons: one, to meet grant requirements, and two, to have leaves on the trees to ensure a more accurate tree count. Hall said Davey was the only bidder to submit a complete bid, which includes an inventory of all public trees and an estimate for a tree canopy assessment.
