CapeGazette.com - Rehoboth Beach tree study to start later this month:
A study of Rehoboth Beach’s public tree canopy is set to get underway in the last week of September and the first week of October.
Davey Resource Group of Ohio will conduct the study, which is expected to take two weeks, working four 10-hour days.
Bryan Hall, of the State Office of Planning and Coordination said the results of the study should be complete before the beginning of next year.
The city received a $15,000 grant from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to conduct the study. Davey Tree estimated it could inventory 5,000 city trees at a cost of $4.49 per tree.
Bryan Hall, of the State Office of Planning and Coordination, said the study will take place while leaves are still on the trees but most of the tourists have gone home.
