Community Tree Planting Saturday, November 4, 2017

Join us at our fourth community tree planting.  We have planted nearly 100 trees since January, 2015.

The trees are provided by SMUD and sited by the Tree Foundation.  After you apply, a Community Forester will visit your home to determine the best place to plant one of the deciduous trees offered by SMUD and the Tree Foundation.

Planting assistance is provided to those who request it. Trees are provided at no cost to the homeowner, but tree maintenance is the homeowner’s responsibility.

Deadline: September 8, 2017 

If you do not have access to email, send your name, address and phone number to:

The River Park Tree Canopy Project is a Neighborwoods Program co-sponsored by the River Park Neighborhood Association, the River Park Garden Club, the Sacramento Tree Foundation, Caleb Greenwood School, SMUD, and Councilmember Jeff Harris.  We are a community-based effort to restore and enhance the tree canopy in River Park.  River Park’s beautiful trees improve air quality, reduce energy costs, increase our property values, and provide a respite from summer’s heat.
