Preservation of Oak Tree at Millgrove Park
Residents of Millers Grove are familiar with the lovely old oak trees in the park at Tours and Millers Grove. This park location is unique due to these large majestic Burr Oak trees that are a true landmark in our community.
I had an onsite meeting with Forestry staff in August to discuss the fate of this old oak tree pictured above. It is located beside the playground at Millers Grove and Tours.
As you can see the tree is totally dead and is starting to rot from the inside.Staff have managed to keep it alive through care and pruning and we had hoped that when it eventually had to come down we could have it carved to remain as an art structure. At this time, we are unsure if it is viable for carving but I am confident we can retain part of the tree in some form that will compliment the area.
Work will be scheduled to remove all the branches and the trunk down to just below the lowest branch. At that time it will be assessed to see what can be done. If you have seen any trees that have been cut low and have been re-purposed please share with me..I am open to all ideas. Please email me at email@example.com with your suggestions.
Installation of "Senior Crossing" Signs
I had the pleasure of enjoying a lunch at Eden Seniors Village this summer and had several requests from the residents.
One was for signage indicating that seniors are crossing at Battleford and Winston Churchill, similar to those near Heritage Glen at Glen Erin and Battleford.
I am pleased to confirm that the "Senior Crossing" signs will be installed at the intersection of Winston Churchill Boulevard and Battleford Road.
