Crews were busy planting new trees on 4th Street this morning. City of Northfield staff had indicated that they were waiting for the first frost as the transfer would be less traumatic. With our unusually warm fall, it was a long wait.
It was well worth it, however. It’s good to see the trees back on 4th Street. The trees provide a visual, natural link between our historic buildings and our scenic river in our historic, scenic, and authentic downtown.
Thanks to the citizens who advocated for the return of the trees, and thanks to the City Council for being so diligent in assuring their return, and thanks to City Staff for coordinating the return. I look forward to seeing them leafed out next spring.
