Audubon Park Gets Twenty New Mature Live Oak Trees

Audubon Park is already beautiful with all of it’s oak trees.  Now they’re getting 20 more trees planted.

On Wednesday, 9 of the 20 mature live oak trees went into the ground at the park.  They are being placed along the jogging path.

Tree experts with Audubon went down to Florida to hand-pick the trees.

Chevron funded the project, with each tree costing thousands of dollars.

Audubon Park lost 1,000 trees during Hurricane Katrina.    So far, they’ve replaced 700 of the trees.

By January, all 20 trees will be planted.
