Abundant rain and moderate temperatures combined to make this a
banner year for Turtle Bay's trees and flower beds. The Doe Fund
(see story, page 1) carried out a twice-weekly watering program
that helped almost all the begonias survive and prosper. We lost
almost no trees on Second Avenue.
We had to repair a few of the cobblestone tree borders, which
were crunched by trucks, but our new low-profile borders have largely
solved this problem. The Parks Department will plant about a dozen
trees in Turtle Bay this fall. Be sure to call the TBA office to
report any dead trees or empty tree beds in your neighborhood.
Our Anti-Graffiti Squad was active last summer, painting over our
blue and green mailboxes that were defaced by vandals. They also
help to keep our corner lampposts free from those annoying "towing"
stickers and posters advertising unlicensed movers.
