Dead trees around Loudermilk Park are removed; will be replaced

The nine oak trees which died after being planted around the perimeter of the newly redeveloped and reopened Charlie Loudermilk Park earlier this year in Buckhead have been removed and will be replaced sometime during this fall.

This park perimeter along Sardis Way had a row of oak trees that died and have been removed. They will be replaced.

After the nine oak trees died over the summer, the Buckhead Community Improvement District (BCID) issued a statement on its website about the problem, which read:

“The [district] is working to understand what has affected the oak trees that line the recently reopened (park). The nine dead oak trees will be removed, examined to understand the cause of their distress and the (BCID) will work to correct any issues. More information will be provided following the examination.”

The BCID also said in the statement it “plans to plant replacement trees in late October through early December.” But for now, the northern end of the park, along Sardis Way, is devoid of trees, along with a few other vacant areas around the park.

The park, named after the Buckhead philanthropist and Aaron’s founder, cost about $2.4 million to redevelop and funds came from the BCID and private donations.

      What’s with the new trees in the area. The temporary trees planted in the future home of the ugliest building in Buckhead (Brand Properties lot on Rumson and Peachtree) are also struggling. Half of them are brown. That with the crumbling side of the water retention area only go to show the great promise for things to come from Brand Properties!

      I doubt they watered them like they should. Same for the trees at Brand Lot.

      Some Alabama fan probably poisoned them
