City Hall: Economic development chief takes charge • Columnists (www.HometownAnnapolis.com - The Capital):
Four willow oaks were recently planted in the Historic District to replace the aging trees removed in August due to safety concerns.
The trees were planted at 183 and 193 Duke of Gloucester St. and at 122 and 123 Conduit St.
The money to replace the trees, as well as to plant trees in various other locations in the city, came from an Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay grant.
The grant totaled $40,000, of which two-thirds was used for planting numerous trees and shrubs last fall. The remaining third was used recently to plant 42 trees and 24 shrubs throughout Annapolis, including the four replacement trees. In all, 233 trees and 153 shrubs were planted with the grant money.
