Dear Members and Residents,
This morning Dún Laoghaire Rathdown parks dept planted 21 Pin Oak trees in the parkland in between the apartments and the stream.
The trees will help mitigate noise and light from the N11 / Druids Glen Road and the Beechpark development.
These were due to be planted last year along with the dozen or so planted last March on the far side of the stream, unfortunately the pandemic delayed the work.
Quercus Palustris (Pin Oak) has stunning red autumn leaf colour and is a magnificent, relatively fast growing tree, with a straight main trunk and handsome horizontally growing branches gently drooping at their tips. The smooth leaves are glossy, mid green with deeply lobed edges and turn to bright crimson in the autumn, a truly stunning display. The small acorns are small and round.
Mature height is 20m+ and almost as broad at the base.
We’d like to thank the team at dlr parks dept for working with the Residents Association on this project.
