    Dear FOPG,
    I am trying to find information (species info, planting dates, any other info) on two trees in the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, between Berkeley and Clarendon, with green tags identifying them as “BC-19” and “BC-40”. They appear to be oaks, and remarkably, have retained green crowns as late as today (Jan. 4, 2011). I am a tree physiology researcher at Boston University and am trying to figure out what is going on with these trees. Thanks for any leads you can provide. Best wishes,
    Nathan Phillips
