Volunteers Needed for Tree Planting - Saturday, May 13th
Volunteers from Charles Town Parks and Recs Commission have received 16 free trees through the Carla Hardy WV Project CommuniTree to be planted at Jefferson Memorial Park on Saturday May 13, 2017 at 11:00am. CTree promotes tree planting and education on public land through volunteerism in the Potomac Headwaters of West Virginia (Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral, Morgan, & Pendleton counties).
“Cacapon Institute and our partners with CTree are proud to support this community tree planting project,” says Cacapon Institute’s Urban Watershed Forester, Tanner Haid.
Trees provide many benefits to communities, such as reducing air pollution, improving water quality, increasing property values, decreasing energy costs, and creating wildlife habitat.
“This is the third CommuniTree planting we’ve done. It is such a pleasure to work with Tanner Haid and The Cacapon Institute. They make it easy and fun. Planting trees is a wonderful way to bring together the community to make a difference and add to the quality of our life here in Charles Town,” said Todd Coyle, Project Leader.
This is one of several CTree projects that will be taking place this spring 2017. Since 2012, CTree has sponsored 127 tree planting projects and planted nearly 4,000 trees with over 8,500 volunteers.
