This new dog park will be home to several new varieties of trees! These new species are being tested for possible use throughout the city and will be tested for survival, performance, and growth rate. 

Different soil amendments will also be used to find new ways to establish trees on tough sites. This work is part of an ongoing research partnership between the City of Saint Paul – Forestry Unit and the Department of Horticultural Science at the University of Minnesota.
