Community Fall Tree Planting

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Calling all tree lovers and landscape enthusiasts. Volunteers, we need your help! The Town has been given more than 300 pine, crab apple and hackberry trees. Now, volunteers are needed to help plant the trees the week of Oct. 14, before planting season is over. The trees will be planted at 10 different Town locations. Crews and volunteers will be working at two locations each day, so bring gloves, a shovel, and a wheelbarrow if you have one, and get ready to get your hands dirty. Town crews will pre-dig the holes. Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to noon throughout the week to finish cleaning out the holes, planting the tree and staking the trees, and then mulching.

The tree planting schedule for the week:
Monday, Oct. 14
  • Philip S. Miller Park
  • Founders Park
Tuesday, Oct. 15
  • Rhyolite Regional Park
  • Mitchell Gulch Park
Wednesday, Oct. 16
  • Metzler Ranch Park
  • Gemstone Park
Thursday, Oct. 17
  • Bison Park
  • Wrangler Park
Friday, Oct. 18
  • Paintbrush Park
  • Wilcox and Perry Streets

 

This schedul may vary depending on how many volunteers we have each day. Water, snacks and some tools will be provided. Plus, the first 50 volunteers each day will receive a free T-shirt. Registration and more information is available online at CRgov.com/TreePlanting.

 

The trees have been donated to the Town as part of the C-470 Express Lane Project. Part of the project’s stipulations were that the contractor must replace every tree disturbed or removed. There wasn’t enough room at the project to replace all the trees, so nearby entities were given the opportunity to plant the trees in their own communities.
