November 29, 2022 - Savannah Historic Properties founder, Ron Melander coordinated with neighbors and the City of Savannah to plant six, twenty foot live oaks and three 30 gallon camellias in the 500 block of Tattnall Street on Nov. 16-17, 2022.

“As a 32 year downtown resident, I have long appreciated the beauty of Savannah’s signature live oaks which provide shady filtered light, much needed oxygen and beauty to our city. This was a way to fill in the blanks in the tree lawn on Tattnall Street and pull together a historic row of houses which had felt disjointed and now feel unified. I worked with all the neighbors to get a consensus and was fortunate to have Hester & Zipperer, the locally owned 100 year old landscape nursery, do the installation,” stated Melander.
