Well, it is indeed another excellent opportunity to plant trees when Arbor Day 2014 comes around! This year, we are once again gathering on a Saturday (Arbor Day is held on the last Friday of April), as it allows for a larger volunteer base.
Power Plant Festival 2014
We will also be looking forward to September 20, also a Saturday, for the Power Plant tree planting event. Details to come!
CD102.5FM and Raising Canes have both given verbal commitments to joining the sponsorship and promotional support efforts.
Spoke with CD102.5, possibility of CD102.5 Green Team joining the effort.
Secured 2nd venue for 2nd night of BOSSWOODSTOCK music portion of the event.
Meetings setup this week for additional tree planting resources and donations.
I met with the City Forester, Joe Sulak, today at Nelson Park. We settled on a goal of 20 trees to be planted at the shelter area. Of course my goals with BTI are much greater in terms of impact and numbers. Together we can shatter expectations!
Trees need to be watered weekly for the first few years, therefore we must ensure that we can provide for ongoing care once the trees are planted.
In other words, the city is prepared to handle long term care and maintenance of these trees, but if the scope of our effort should grow, advanced planning will be necessary.
