WE HAVE SOME PRETTY EXCITING NEWS TO REPORT!
After several years of successful neighborhood tree re-plantings, we’ve decided to begin an aggressive approach to achieve a 90% tree canopy by 2040. Thanks to a generous private donation, your dues payments and tree fund donations — THE PROJECT IS FULLY FUNDED!
As you are probably aware, trees help homeowners save energy, keep our neighborhood cooler in the summer, make the area more inviting to walk and bike through, and improve the air quality. We will plant new trees in places that provide the maximum benefit. This includes choosing appropriate species for each site and planting a variety of species because diversity protects the community forest from catastrophic loss due to pests and diseases.
READ ALL ABOUT IT!
For a more in-depth look, this PRESENTATION shares the mission and goals, background data, the plan in phases, planting locations, tree species, and cost.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Help us bring this plan to life by caring for one or more trees coming to your area! In a week or so we will send out an email with opportunities for you to sign up to help. We need to back-fill in the holes and spread one bag of mulch per new tree. The first delivery of 29 trees will be in October.
If you have any questions, reply to this email or feel free to reach out to Jeff Shutz via EMAIL.
