100 Trees in 1 Year!
Arbor Day 2017
~ and the ‘40 Years, Tree City USA’ Arbor Day Foundation award ceremony
North End Woodlands Project Day
The partnership between our City Forestry Division and our neighborhood has been uniquely beneficial to the entire city, and we have worked together with joy and fidelity. We were honored to receive a Proclamation from the City Council, recognizing May 22, 2018 as The North End Woodlands Project Day in the City of Colorado Springs.
The velocity of this collaborative planting project — 100 trees in 1-year — is hugely attributable to our City Forestry Division. The City Forestry Division, in accordance with our Memorandum of Understanding, felled and cleared 100 dead trees, hand-selected the new tree stock, augured new holes per Mr. Brett Jackson’s landscape design AND assisted in the planting of new trees over four plantings. Additionally, the City Forestry Division has committed to providing supplemental water for each tree for three years. You guys are the best!
