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 partnership with the City of Somerville and 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!

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. Use the form above to sign up.

Are you part of an organization that wants to volunteer? We can organize a tree watering opportunity. Contact Erica Wood at erica.wood@mysticriver.org for more information.
