The trees on the Concord Road side of the park were destroyed by Oriental Bittersweet vines. They were cut down because these were not safe so near the sidewalk. There was not a replanting plan. The invasive roots are still in the ground. Other harmful and unsightly plants have taken up residence there and are filling up the empty location. SWEET, Inc. is willing to try to remove these harmful plants and put replacement species in this area. But without help, the plan would not be achieved quickly or at all.
A replacement plant day is scheduled for Oct. 19 (rain date Oct. 20) Park at Town Hall and walk across to the park. For further information, contact Rebecca at 978-505-1301
