Working with Nuckols Tree Care, they cut back and trimmed the much beloved but fading, ancient oak in one of the courtyards to give it a lift. Then they also planted a beautiful new live oak across the walkway to give the old tree a friend and to give the neighborhood a lift too! Thank you, Beach Colony and Nuckols Tree Care!
Join the Friends of Live Oaks this fall and you will get a free live oak sapling as long as the trees last!
We have lots of little saplings looking for a home. We had planned to give these trees to new members at the tree celebration, TreeTopia, at Mount Trashmore that was recently rained out.
Dues are $25 for individuals and $100 for a business or community group.
Mail a check, payable to Friends of Live Oaks, c/o Clay Bernick, 214 A 84th Street, Virginia Beach Va. 23451.
Give us your name, cell number/email and address and we’ll bring a live oak to you!!!
The work is being done on Tuesday December 19th.
SUMMARY: The city has a Master Arborist coming to do the required mitigation work on our lovely tree on Tuesday, Dec 19:
City Arborist wrote…..
“I received word today that our contractor plans to do the crown cleaning and branch reduction tomorrow for the Live Oak at 2512 Bayview Avenue. We are requesting any onlookers to remain well back from city and private property lines in order to insure safety. . .
What great news for our beloved City Tree!
Received the BEST NEWS EVER from Virginia Beach (THANK YOU FRANK FENTRESS & SUSAN FRENCH!) after the city had a master arborist (THANK YOU JASON HEIZER of Bartlett Tree Experts) do a Risk Assessment which resulted in the determination that the tree is “Low risk” & recommended taking a number of mitigation measures to decrease the risk further.
Since the residents’ petition surfaced, the city has delayed removing the tree and is seeking a second opinion, said Susan French, an arborist for Virginia Beach.
They also consulted with the Friends of Live Oaks organization, which supports city efforts to retain and protect the trees.
