Community leaders, groups at odds about Mosholu Parkway trees

Community leaders, residents and a Bronx-based community group are at odds about trees that were planted along Mosholu Parkway two years ago.



The flowering Dogwood trees were planted between the lanes of the Mosholu Parkway from Hull Avenue to Van Cortlandt Park Avenue in 2014.



The president of the group Friends of Mosholu Parkland says community leaders have been complaining to Community Board 7 that the trees are cluttering an open space where children used to be able to play.



One member of the board told News 12 The Bronx she wants the trees removed and the green space returned.



Friends of Mosholu Parkland claim the trees not only beautify the neighborhood, but also help the environment.



The Parks Department's Forestry Division says that they will continue to have conversations with elected officials and community leaders to determine the future of the trees.
