Last week, the City of Providence Parks Department showed up and installed 4 new street trees, 2 on Hope and 2 on Lauriston. These new trees were in response to SNA protests to the removal of the mature street tree that was in front of the CVS sign. Having four immature trees doesn’t replace one beautiful mature one, but with care and time these trees will add to the beauty and character of Summit.

Our thanks to Doug Still, the City Forester, who took the initiative to have the trees put in this planting season !

Meanwhile, please join your neighbors to protect and guard the street trees, both new and mature, that we have here. It only takes one turn of the head and slip of the saw to lose something that took 20 years to grow !

Note: this post previously stated that CVS planted the trees. This was incorrect. Apologies for any confusion.
