Final tree plantings for Segment 1 were completed in Fall 2018.
Tree replacement and landscaping supports stabilized soil, prevents erosion, regulates water flow, absorbs carbon and filter pollutants, cools the air and provides animal habitat. Plantings were selected for:
- Native/naturalized to corridor
- Survivability in highway environment
- Resistant to storm damage, disease, insects and salt
- Seasonal interest
- Easy transplanting/establishment
