A Tree Grows in Oklahoma

SWA Group, the landscape architects of record for the Friends of the Katy Trail, thinks they have found a beautiful specimen tree in Oklahoma that would be perfect for the plaza on the Katy Trail overlooking Lee Park. It's a Burr Oak - the same tree planted in the Briggs-Freeman Plaza in Reverchon Park - and one the City of Dallas' former arborist, now a senior planner for Parks, thinks Dallas could use more of. The tree is currently 20-25 feet tall.

Expect to see construction of this plaza begin in early 2009.
