[ARCHIVED] Save our Canopy Tree Planting

When: November 10, 2018 at 9 a.m. 

Where: Meet at the grassy triangle at the corner of Kensington and Berkeley

Get out your shovel, put on your work clothes-it's time to plant a tree! On Saturday, November 10, the City of Avondale Estates, along with the Tree Board, Trees Atlanta and Arborguard Tree Services, invite you to get dirty and plant trees as part of our ongoing "Save Our Canopy" tree project. We will be meeting at the grassy triangle at the corner of Kensington and Berkeley at 9 a.m.

This year there are 40 trees to be planted in the verge (the area between the street and sidewalk) in the continuing effort to sustain the green canopy of trees that makes Avondale so special. The original oak trees that were planted in the late 1920's are ending their life span and it's up to all of us to be vigilant in planting their substitutes. The maple trees were hit hard this year and the City has been removing many of them for safety reasons. 

Who can forget their beautiful yellow and red leaves in the fall? Children love to come help and often talk about "their" tree with pride. Canopy trees to be planted include oaks, maples, poplars and elms.
