Tree Planting and Tree Sale Pickup

May 6 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The annual tree planting day is a festive event which attracts 70-80 volunteers of all ages. Music is often provided by local musicians and a troupe of folk dancers often make an appearance. Refreshments are served with the work is done and everyone goes home with a door prize.

Every spring we plant over 120 bare-root saplings (5-8 ft tall) purchased from a commercial nursery. The trees are planted into special cloth “grow bags” that support healthy root growth and discourage stem-girdling roots. This growing system concentrates the root system within the bag and facilitates transplanting.

Also:
Pre-ordered trees available for pick up at the UVM Horticulture Farm in South Burlington on the first Saturday in May from 9 – 11am.  Directions to the Hort Farm click here.
