Trees Atlanta Branches Outside The Perimeter
Atlanta, Georgia – October 19, 2015 – Trees Atlanta will be back for its third tree planting in Dunwoody on Saturday, October 24, in Brook Run Park located at 4770 North Peachtree Road, Dunwoody, Georgia from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Trees Atlanta invites you to join us and help plant over 150 shade trees in one morning.
The City of Dunwoody requested our help in replacing trees that were removed during the installation of a new walking trail around Brook Run Park.
A project this big requires a lot of coordination, including deciding upon exact planting locations, calling the utility company to make sure no underground utility lines will be disturbed by the planting, ordering and delivering trees, and recruiting volunteers.
The Dunwoody planting is a perfect example of Trees Atlanta’s mission to protect and improve the urban forest by planting, conserving, and educating. This project is just beginning: over the next two years, Trees Atlanta will continue to maintain these trees through watering, mulching, and pruning. Trees Atlanta appreciates the support of the community and looks forward to future successful plantings in Dunwoody.
We need lots of volunteers to help us plant, so join us on one of the largest tree planting initiatives in Dunwoody’s history. Project leaders will receive their assignments that morning, which will include all the areas where they’ll be working, as well as access points, mulch piles, water spigots, and hydrants where we can fill water tanks and drive them around to water the trees.
