Volunteers Needed for Tree Planting This Weekend

*******THE WHIPS HAVE ARRIVED…COME GET YOURS TO PLANT!

NRPA staff is here from 10:00am-3:00pm to hand out trees, pass out instructions and answer your questions.******

The National Recreation and Parks Association is donating 200 whips (white oaks and Green sapling of apple treesycamores) to the HOA to be planted as part of our earth day efforts.  The locations for planting are in the no-mow areas behind Frame Square, Iredell Square, and Summerbrooke Pool, up the hill, backing up to the Greenway. The no-mow areas were established to increase habitats for insects and wildlife, reduce air and noise pollution from mowers, provide a buffer from the highway, restore natural landscapes for exploring, promote sustainable landscaping, and reduce heat island effects.

Volunteer to plant at your leisure this weekend. Areas will be marked where planting should take place. Click on PLANTING MAP for location details. The whips are very small and will be easy to transport and plant. All you need is a small shovel or spade.  It’s as easy as 1-2-3…dig the hole, plant the whip, and fill the hole with dirt and compact.  Watering is helpful, but not necessary.  Planting can be done on your own during the time frame allotted.

We are asking students and families to participate in this endeavor. Please sign up here: www.signupgenius.com/go/20f054bafa92ea4ff2-volunteers

These whips will be available beginning Friday, April 27th for planting over the weekend. Whips can be picked up at the Nature Center on Friday or Saturday morning on the back patio, adjacent to the tennis courts.  NRPA will have staff at the Nature Center on Friday, from 10:00am-3:00pm to hand out trees, pass out instructions and answer your questions.
