Know Your City’s Trees! May Contest

Where in South Boston was this tree? This month we’re featuring a recent historical photo. We’ve featured a mix of urban trees, mostly around South Boston and some in other neighborhoods. You might need to really know South Boston to win this month’s contest! This famous tree, which gave joy to many in Southie, was struck by lightning a few years ago. This scene shows the tree soon after it was struck.

Urban trees serve many roles at once: beautification, recreation, noise reduction, improving air quality and protecting the environment. Above all, they make neighbors happy.

Tech Networks of Boston supports the preservation of mature urban trees, which make neighborhoods more pleasant, filter our air and water, and moderate temperatures. We hope you’ll use this contest as a fun way to get to know your city’s trees!
