Street Tree Inventory Starts
The Jamestown Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department announces that the Davey Resource Group, a division of the Davey Tree Expert Company, will begin a street tree inventory in Jamestown neighborhoods starting this week. Workers will be measuring and evaluating city trees in the right-of-way starting in Ward 1 before continuing over to Ward 3. The inventory will be used as part of the management of the city’s urban forest. The inventory project is being funded through a grant by the Department of Environmental Conservation. Anyone with questions may contact City Arborist Dan Stone at 483-7554.
BPU Fixed Power Outtage Tuesday
