Marine Avenue Tree Replacement Work Begins October 2
The City of Newport Beach (City) is commencing a project that includes replacing missing or diseased trees along Marine Avenue on Balboa Island.
On Wednesday, October 2, the City’s contractor, Park West Landscape Maintenance (Park West), will plant five, 24-inch box Eucalyptus trees at various locations along Marine Ave (see map). The trees will replace trees that were previously removed. A water truck will irrigate the newly planted trees every Friday between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. until a more viable water source is determined. The City’s staff arborist will monitor the trees and adjust the watering schedule as needed.
From Monday, October 14 through Friday, October 18, another City contractor, Great Scott Tree Services, will remove four, high-risk, diseased Eucalyptus trees and three other, non-Eucalyptus trees (see map) approved for removal and replacement by the City’s Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission. To minimize impacts to local businesses and vehicular traffic along Marine Avenue, the tree removals will occur between 3 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. Road closures and detours will be in place and the work will generate noise at times. The City apologizes, in advance, for the inconvenience.
From Monday, October 14 through Tuesday, October 29, City crews will remove and replace the concrete around the newly vacant tree wells. Once the concrete work is complete, Park West will plant the replacement, 24-inch box Eucalyptus trees on October 28 and 29. City staff will install temporary tree grates until a permanent tree grate design is selected.
