The City of Oakwood with assistance from the Oakwood Beautification Committee will again offer the Johnny Appleseed Street Tree Planting project this fall to Oakwood homeowners.    Applications and detailed brochures describing the project and the tree  varieties will be available in late September from the Oakwood Community Center or by calling 298-0775.  Four or five varieties of trees will be offered.  The selected trees will be approximately 2” in diameter and will be discounted 50% to   Oakwood residents. One tree will be allocated for each approved property site at the discounted price and must be planted in the city right-of-way.  The residential street trees chosen are excellent species for the right-of-way and most are resistant to disease and insect problems.  Trees will be planted by a local nursery the latter part of November or the beginning of December. They will be wrapped, staked, mulched and guaranteed for one growing season.  The neediest areas in Oakwood will be given first         priority. For further information on this project, please call 298-0775.
