Tree by tree, sections of the Casey Arborway are being replanted.
On Tuesday, resident Clay Harper noticed 21 plane trees being planted along the western section of the massive project. The plantings come two years after clearcutting of hundreds of trees around Forest Hills Station. By the time the road realignment project is completely done – current estimates put that at Spring 2018 – MassDOT says the area will have 400 more trees than when the project began.
We’ve been following the Casey Arborway project’s ups and down for years. Here are a few of our Casey Arborway stories that touch on trees:
