Status of This Year’s Tree Giveaway (2023)
Currently, the ball is in the court of the nurserymen and women who grow the trees. They decide when it’s appropriate to dig a given species. Since our order has a diversity of species on it, we must wait until they dig all the species needed to compile it and ship it in its entirety. It was also exceptionally dry up until a week or so, so their digging was further delayed by the dry soil conditions. (They don’t want to deliver a dry/prone-to-cracking rootball.) All this is to say that our order isn’t ready and has not shipped. But when it does, Brownsboro Village is at the top of our priority list.
The Process of Locating Utilities
When we got word from the nursery that digging would be delayed this year because of soil moisture, we opted to wait to call the Before U Dig utility locators so that their marks would be recent and visible when we need them to be rather than faded and mowed over.
We told everyone it would be between Thanksgiving and Christmas when their trees would arrive, and it still will be. We’ll be in touch!”
