Dunwoody city officials are considering hiring Trees Atlanta to plant 300 trees in Dunwoody parks.

City Council is scheduled to vote July 22 on a contract to hire the Atlanta nonprofit for $60,000 to provide the 300 trees, oversee their planting and to water, mulch and prune them for two years. The trees are scheduled to be planted by volunteers during a work day in the fall.

The trees are intended to meet requirements that the city replace trees removed to make way for the 12-foot-wide multi-use trail in Brook Run Park. City officials say the city removed 230 trees for the trail.
