Russell Boulevard bike path gets more trees

Eight Tree Davis volunteers planted 50 valley oak trees on Saturday, March 16, in honor of Arbor Day. The plantings were done in conjunction with the Russell Boulevard Tree Project, which has planted more than 400 trees along the Russell Boulevard bike path west of Davis since 2009.

Funding for this planting was provided to Tree Davis by the Sacramento Tree Foundation as part of its California ReLeaf 2013 Arbor Week Tree Planting Grant Program. The program is done in cooperation with the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The trees were donated by the L.A. Moran Reforestation Center on Chiles Road in Davis, which is managed by Rich Marovich, streamkeeper for the Lower Putah Creek Coordinating Committee.

The holes were dug ahead of time by Dan Garrett of Garrett Landscape Construction, who donated his time and the use of his company’s Bobcat auger.

The water was provided by Phil Kitchen of Three Palms Nursery, which is located near the planting site at the junction of County Road 95 and Russell Boulevard (Road 32).

“Many passers-by on the bike path have voiced their appreciation to the volunteers as they plant the trees, which is so very nice,” says Janet Mercurio, coordinator of the Russell Boulevard Tree Project. “But some people have also voiced concern about the trees that are planted directly under the utility lines, so I clarify for them that the lines are only telephone lines and not electrical lines. The telephone company allows trees to grow right through the phone lines with only occasional minor pruning needed, so there is no problem.”

Organizers hope to plant another 36 trees this fall to complete the project along the Russell Boulevard bike path, Mercurio said.
