It is no secret that trees are important to Brooklynites, that’s why we take special care of our street trees on Myrtle Avenue. The U. Arias Corporation crews were out in the rain this week aerating soil, laying fresh mulch and placing gravel in pits on the avenue. Why gravel? We are glad that you asked! The gravel is being placed in select tree beds to improve the irrigation and provide a buffer for plants, protecting them from debris, people, and dogs. Help us keep the avenue beautiful and place garbage in trash cans, not in tree beds!
