Trees the topic at Fulton neighborhood meeting
SALISBURY ó Trees and how they can survive and thrive in a neighborhood was the theme of the Fulton Heights Neighborhood Associationís annual meeting.
The group met Oct. 20 at Maupin Avenue Presbyterian Church with attendees ranging in age from three months to 89 years.
Stephen Brown, maintenance manager for Salisbury Parks and Recreation, and Penny Wallace with Duke Energyís right of way management/asset protection program emphasized choosing the right tree and putting it in the right place.
Many trees grow too large and interfere with overhead wires. Trees need to be pruned properly, never topped.
Fulton Heights has many trees. However as trees are lost, few are being replaced. Neighborhood leaders encouraged owners to think seriously about planting appropriate trees for the future.
The association board also reviewed its many activities for the community, including the Halloween Dog Parade and the revitalization of block captains and Neighborhood Watch captains.
The Fulton Heights Neighborhood Association is a voluntary association encouraging community spirit and cooperation.
