MARIETTA – On Monday, March 25, 2019 the City of Marietta is pleased to announce that City officials, with the Glover family, will install a new tree in Glover Park in the place of the diseased tree which was removed a few weeks ago.

The former tree was a Willow Oak which had called Glover Park its home for about 150 years. The tree was very diseased and after years of trying to make it well city staff, in conjunction with professional arborists, made the difficult decision to take it down to ensure the safety of Glover Park patrons.

The new tree is a “Highbeam” Overcup Oak which is about 10 years old. The Square’s newest resident will weigh a whopping 2,500 pounds on arrival! The Overcup Oak is a sturdy native of the Southeast. It is noted for the hardness of its wood and resistance to borers and decay. The Highbeam is a hybrid that was cultivated for its form, tolerance of urban soils and tendency to clean drop its leaves in the fall. The last characteristic is the favorite of the landscape maintenance industry

WHO: City Officials

WHAT: Tree Installation in Glover Park

WHEN: Monday, March 25, 2019 at 12:00pm
