Last week, we experienced as change of view, when twenty mature, but poorly chosen Norway maples were removed from Cadotte Avenue; I still am amazed at the difference, it's so open now.
Well, there's more change in store, here come some new trees.
A native maple was chosen this time and good sized specimens, approximately 15', which need correspondingly good sized holes.
Digging the holes revealed a surprise, a previous road bed approximately 2' below the surface.
And here they are - it will be many years before they form the arching, almost street spanning reach of the previous trees, but they should have a far longer lifespan than the invasive, disease ridden Norway's - a pleasure for future residents and visitors of Mackinac.
