  1. Minutes from June meeting were approved.

 

  1. Discussed weeding event in place of the last meeting

 

  1. Mike provided an update on the Garden Tour.  The main response was that it was too short and the hosts wanted to be able to visit the other gardens.  We will plan to do this again next year.

 

  1. Discussed the tree tagging work and Mike showed a map of the tree locations from Google map.  All agreed that the trees needed to be labeled.  Mike will work on it and bring back something at the next meeting.

 

  1. Discussed the tree recognition program and that District website needs to be updated to show this year’s winners and provide information about next year’s event.  We will work to get the information on the webpage.

 

  1. Discussed the City’s Tree recognition program and all felt the nomination form was intimidating and harder to complete then anyone felt like doing.  Mike will provide this feedback to the City to help them improve the form for next year.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
