Rockwood / O’Neal Drive

June 2009

This 2-lane, divided road connects South Church Street to Front Street in central Burlington, NC.  The existing City of Burlington mowing agreement with NCDOT was amended to allow this tree planting project to commence.  The additions to the grassy medians consist of tree plantings, including soil preparation and mulch application through the entire corridor.

Common Names of the 158 trees added to the median are:

  • Brackens Brown Magnolias
  • Chestnut Oaks
  • Japanese Apricots
  • Natchez Crepemyrtles
  • Nellie Stevens Hollies
  • Nutall Oaks

When you travel this road, enjoy the new beauty and try to identify these favorite NC trees.
