May 11th Tree Planting

Old Sunnyside Apple Blossoms. Photo: Greg ReillyWe will be doing another tree-planting starting at 9am on Saturday, May 11, 2013. The focus will be planting red and white crabapple trees along Bronson, making for a lovely (and patriotic!) visual effect along this stretch. Noel Lomer has tracked down a great deal on 4-foot crabapples. We'll also be doing a general cleanup of the area, which is a mess of litter. The media has already shown interest in the tree-planting project (the Ottawa Sun has covered our efforts here, and Declan's contacts at the Ottawa Citizen are also interested), so there should be media coverage of the event. We will also do some tree-planting at the green space at Woodbine and Carlyle. It would be great to have a really strong turnout for this!
