I love the artsy feel that you receive as you drive down the tree-lined streets in Dilworth. Ever wondered why so many of these trees are lined with what looks to be black tape about 5 feet from the ground?

It makes it harder for cars to drive fast through the subdivision and they help to protect the sidewalks that line the streets.
