VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES FOR TREE FRED’S FALL 2016 TREE PLANTINGS

OldMillPark126Fredericksburg Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw helped us with tree planting last year, and now it’s your turn. Check out Tree Fredericksburg’s FALL 2016 TREE PLANTING SCHEDULE:  

Saturday, Oct. 1, Hanson Avenue, 9-noon. (305 Hanson Ave., corner of Hanson Avenue and Woodford Street)
Saturday, Oct. 8, Elm Street, 9-noon (parking lot on the corner of Germania and Charles streets)
Saturday, Oct. 15, Dorothy Hart Community Center, 9-noon (corner of Charles and Pitt streets)
Saturday, Oct. 22, Fall Hill Avenue, 9-noon (3312 Fall Hill Ave., between Friends of the Rappahannock and the top of the hill)

Email Tree Fredericksburg Development Director Steve Watkins at swatkins000@gmail.com if you or your group or business would like to volunteer. We’ll be planting 50 trees on each of the first three Saturdays, and 110 trees at Fall Hill on the 22nd.

The Tuesday before each planting, several volunteers will be working with Tree Fredericksburg staff to prepare the trees—washing root balls—at the little park on Powhatan Street, across from Hugh Mercer Elementary. Let us know if you’d like to volunteer to help with that as well.

Thanks, Fredericksburg! We’re planted more than 5,000 trees over the past several years. Our target is 5,000 more.
