Bridge-to-Bridge Group: Planting & Maintenance Weekend

Print Email

The volunteers of the Bridge to Bridge community reforestation project will be planting a limited number of trees and doing clean up maintenance this weekend on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 9 am. We will meet along Canal Woods Terrace at the bottom of Aylmer Avenue.  We have a small number of trees to plant, and maintenance – pruning and cleaning up around the base of the trees – on many of our grown trees.  So please bring shovels, pruning shears, and pruning saws if you have them.  Gardening gloves are also a good idea. Feel free to bring your kids to help out and learn about trees.

Please bring a mask for the initial meeting. Depending on the number of people, we should be able to socially distance during the pruning and planting without masks.

Noel Lomer, our group arborist, will lead a brief tour of the grounds to view and discuss the progress of our trees after more than ten years of planting.  If people have trees to transplant from their property, please let us know in advance. We will arrange for members to help with the transplanting on Saturday.

If it is raining Saturday morning, Sunday, October 4th will be the alternative rain date.
