Downtown - North Loop - Mill District - Elliot Park - Loring Park
I finally got around to checking this out in person (ok, in car) last night instead of via webcam. I'm impressed with the size of the trees they're planting. Given the budgetary constraints, they could have easily skimped on vegetation and gone with tiny little brand new saplings. These are not that.
The problem with being an introvert online is that no one knows you're just hanging out and listening.
You're absolutely right. These trees are really nice. They will provide some really good shade in the years to come. I hope we can get the right amount of rain this year while the roots establish themselves. It would really suck to loose a $1000 tree the first year.

Those trees cost more than $1000. Also, saplings would actually grow faster, stronger and establish better root systems. I hope there will be a layer of younger trees in there too. Gold Medal Park was odd, all the trees that went in were exactly the same size, even between species.
Q. What, what? A. In da butt.

Also definitely some testing going on with the Viking ship/ad board based on what they're displaying (including, oddly, a fire alarm alert).MattW wrote:US Bank Stadium webcam shows grass!
They've been testing that sail video screen for weeks. Anti-smoking ads, seatbelt ads, stars and stripes waving in the breeze (which is actually pretty cool). I tell you, though, if I worked near there and had to see that thing out my window, it would drive me nuts. Hopefully it's just the testing and they'll tone it down some. Use it to advertise the upcoming football game, tractor pull or Kenny Chesney concert, but skip the public service announcements.
