As a gateway to the Cedar Falls College Hill area, Seerley Boulevard is known for the crabapple trees that line the street. After many years, these trees have reached the end of their lives. To help revitalize the street, the College Hill neighborhood and friends of Hugh Pettersen raised funds to purchase new royal raindrop crabapple trees for the boulevard.
During the week of October 17, 2022, City Parks crews will be in the process of planting these new trees. All of the aged trees have been taken out and City staff are currently working on stump removals. The new trees are expected to be planted during the week of October 24. The City asks that the community please be aware of crews if they will be in the area during this time.
We are looking forward to how these new trees will help enhance the entrance to the College Hill area and we thank the community members that made this possible!
