A Tree Story
Mangum Manor Park suffered greatly during the great drought of 2011. Dozens and dozens of trees died and were soon falling on an almost weekly basis. Before anyone was crushed, the City of Houston sent in a crew in the winter of 2011 to begin culling out the dead trees. Where once a grove of ancient trees stood, mostly oaks and pines, was left a near-barren field of stumps. Later in 2012, a local couple initiated, at their own expense, to begin reviving the tree population of the park, soon planting over 50+ trees. Such unsanctioned activity was soon discouraged by the city and came to loggerheads. In 2013, the Mangum Manor Civic Club undertook a collective project to allocate $500 for a tree-plating project, compose and submit plans for the project to the city, gain official approval and at long last planted 11 trees on May 4, 2013.
