Dead trees around Loudermilk Park are removed; 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.
