In a special meeting of the board in October 2019, the PTO has approved the final phase of replanting the Red Maple trees by the playground to replace the Bradford Pear trees that were removed. The pear trees by the children's play areas were planted roughly twenty-five years ago and this type of tree only has a life cycle of approximately twenty-five years. All of the trees were removed by the district last year so we are ready to complete the third and final phase. In order to provide shade by the play areas and keep the campus beautiful for many decades to come, the CME Landscaping Committee came up with a three phase plan to replace the removed trees.
Please note the PTO board can only approve the plan one phase at a time, and as of right now, we can finally say that the final phase has been approved and implemented. We are thankful to the Landscaping Committee, that has worked tirelessly over the years to provide us with expert research and provided us with the recommendations. The final trees will be planted over Thanksgiving Break.
