October 8th 2016 100 volunteers planted over 100 trees at Joseph E. Lee Park! As part of a tree mitigation plan for Potts & Callahan, the Baltimore Tree Trust worked with the Baltimore City Department of Recreation & Parks and Friends of Joseph E. Lee Park to create a planting plan.
On planting day we were joined by volunteers from non-profit organization Volunteering Untapped, Friends of Joseph E. Lee Park, students from Bowie State University, employees from Brown Advisory, community members, and even some neighborhood pups joined the festivities. We started off the day with a "How To" on properly planting a tree-- volunteers learned several valuable skills on how to plant and maintain an urban tree. Urban trees experience a lot of stress through their lifespan--educating individuals about these stresses and how some can be prevented is a very important part of our overall mission.
We cannot thank the volunteers enough for your advocacy. Our success is a direct result of the support we receive from individuals like you. Thank you for your dedication to BTT and the city of Baltimore.
Thank you for HELPING US TRANSFORM BALTIMORE WITH TREES!!!
