Earth Day Tree Plantings
We welcome neighbors to help our team of volunteers plant trees on the morning of Earth Day, Saturday April 22, 2017. It's fun and neighborly -- and we'll teach you how!
We'll be meeting at the SOSNA Office (1901 Christian Street) to organize into groups before heading out to green the neighborhood!
During this planting cycle, we will be planting ten trees with a special emphasis on the 1000 block of South Colorado Street.
- gardening gloves;
- filled reusable water bottle (please don't kill our green mojo with disposable water bottles!);
- spade (preferable) or flat head shovel;
- coarse broom
- wheel barrow or other handy pull cart
- stake driver
Want to lead a planting team? We employ an array of techniques to properly plant bare root trees, to give them the best chance of survival in the urban environment. To learn from PHS' finest, please attend the Bare Root Planting Leader training, Thursday, April 13th from, 6:00 – 7:30 pm at PHS (5th Floor) and RSVP to Mindy Maslin at firstname.lastname@example.org As always, the more helping hands, the lighter the load for all! Lastly, past tree recipients (don't forget to water your trees!) Are your neighbors green with envy at your new street tree? Is your tree lonely? If so, please forward this link to your neighbors which includes the online application for a street tree to be planted during the Fall 2017 cycle. I ask for this application to be submitted by April 25th. Help further green up your block!
