Join us Saturday, April 27th for a community tree planting event! We will be planting 14 large shade trees (~15 feet tall, 2.5-3 in. caliper) on Cedar, Rose, and Lafountain Streets in the Old North End and need volunteers to help dig holes and plant the trees. The event will begin at 9am at the corner of Rose & Cedar Streets. No experience necessary (we’ll do a planting demo) and all ages are welcome. Wear work gloves and bring a shovel if you have one.
This event is made possible by funding through the TD Green Streets Program, a partnership between TD Bank and the Arbor Day Foundation. The Burlington Parks & Recreation Department was awarded a $20,000 grant to support innovative practices in urban forestry and this community tree planting is the kick-off for the grant period. Volunteers from Branch Out Burlington, TD Bank, and the neighborhood will be there — will you?
