A trailer full of trees showed up in the North End on Thursday, responding to resident requests including those made as part of a tree inventory compiled by the Parks and Open Spaces Committee of North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA).

NEWRA’s committee recently met with City Councilor Sal LaMattina who worked with the Parks Department to source and replace the missing trees.

A crew planted the young trees in various locations, opening up pits that had been temporarily paved over in some locations. All the trees shown on the truck bed were planted in the North End / Waterfront neighborhood. The effort is part of 1,200 trees being planted this Spring throughout Boston.

Tree requests can be made by dialing 311, through the BOS:311 app or at the website boston.gov/311.

  1. Very much needed. The North End is such a wonderful neighborhood, but it needs more green on its street. So glad this is being done.
