I would like to thank those responsible for taking action to save the newly-planted trees and large shrubs at the Munroe Falls Dam Project amphitheater area.
Since the article appeared in the June 13 issue of the Stow Sentry, the twine has been removed from the tree trunks and the burlap has been cut back.
According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry, when planting balled and burlapped trees, all twine, at least the top half of the wire basket and the burlap halfway down the root ball should be removed.
Now that most of this has been accomplished, albeit belatedly, the financial investment has been protected and restoration of the riverbank can continue uninterrupted by unnecessary loss of the new trees.
I appreciate that someone accepted responsibility and took corrective action.
