The Roswell City Council has approved a partnership with the Horseshoe Bend Community Association to plant 17 trees at the Tom Harris Meadow area.

The city will provide a $4,983.44 cash match from its Tree Planting Partnership program, for a total project cost of $9,966.88.

The project restores trees lost to a lake dredging and storm water control project, and tree cover lost to storms along the Steeplechase Drive common area, according to a staff report to the council.

The community association has hired Keith Williams of Keith’s Greenery to install and maintain the trees, staff said. The 15 October Glory maples of 3-inch caliper, and two magnolias of 10 to 12 feet, come with amendments, mulch, stakes and a one-year guarantee.
