Wilmington Tree Commission

Wilmington Tree Commission

Wednesday, December 12
      On Wednesday, the Wilmington Tree Commission planted 12 donated Longleaf pine seedlings at a site at the foot of Rosemont Avenue in McCrary Park, adjacent to the new Cross-City Trail bridge.

The commission promotes the city’s urban forest and coordinates tree-related awards and recognition programs. Wilmington has been named as a Tree City USA for the past nine years and this year was recognized by the state as Tree City USA of the Year because of the commission’s efforts with other groups to support the city’s urban forestry program through activities such as planting almost 100 trees on Fifth Avenue earlier this year. The trees were donated by the Residents of Old Wilmington.

In 2013, the commission plans to continue to locate places to plant new trees, as well as to recognize mature trees that make up the existing urban forest. Nine new live oaks, purchased through a grant from the Cape Fear Garden Club, will be added to the Market Street median early next year.
