Increased tree canopy means cleaner air and water, cooler temperatures and happier people! You can read more about the benefits of trees here. Over the next year we will plant 100 trees in Somerville, using volunteers, and implement a volunteer tree watering program. Younger trees need to be watered more frequently because their limited root systems can't reach water underground--volunteer to water, and help establish a tree that will be here for generations!
We're currently working to keep all trees watered and making plans to plant the last 50 in fall 2018. You can sign up to volunteer to adopt or plant a tree on the form below.
Where are the Trees?
All it takes is you and a bucket to keep a new tree alive! We'll supply the bucket and instructions--it's easy! It's crucial to keep young trees watered, and your short term investment will allow a healthy tree to flourish for generations.
