After spending a few days at the i-Tree conference, Friday with the help of the Worcester Forestry Department we were back out in the field planting trees. We planted seven trees at Fancis McGrath Elementary School. We worked with the first, second and third grades. Of all the schools that we have worked with this spring, this school has a school yard that needs a lot of clean up work. By planting these trees it was a small change, but it will go a long way to making the school yard more attractive. Working with the Forestry Department is always a lot of fun, and they are really helpful in the process; bringing along a water truck to water the trees, stakes, and are great teaching the students about the importance of trees and how to plant them.
Why what we are doing is important!
