Over the last several years, the Esplanade Association has focused its efforts heavily on the health of the park’s more than 1,700 trees.

The plan will build on the existing 2015 tree inventory to create a multi-year maintenance and planting plan, ensuring a healthy tree canopy for future generations. The Garden Club of the Back Bay contributed to the inventory of trees. The Association is delighted to present the draft of this plan for your review and comment. Please join us on Wednesday, May 30 from 5:30pm to 6:30 pm at Fisher College’s Alumni Hall to learn more and share your feedback. RSVP to info@esplanadeassociation.org.
