Scott’s Addition Tree Canopy Campaign has been a success since the beginning of neighborhood engagement – and this weekend was no exception. Louise Seals reports that we had a great turnout this for tree planting. On this past, cold Saturday morning, 3 flowering Crabapples and 3 Princeton elms were planted, as part of our Community Roots tree give-aways. Lee Stewart (kneeling behind the tree, in the green ball cap, in the first photo), says that we have planted about 100 trees, in the last few years. Tree Stewards and Tree Planting in Scott's Addition

Many thanks to all who came out this weekend to help green Scott’s Addition! Special thanks to Steward JoLee Kenney (in safety vest, in the first photo) and Lee Stewart for all their work to make this happen. Shout out to Peter Girardi of True Timber (kneeling 3rd from left) for helping unload all the trees Friday morning, housing the elms overnight and then bringing them to the planting site Saturday morning. We are especially grateful to our community volunteers, and to Steward Trainees Sara Sanderlin and Judy Rurak (next to JoLess Kenney).

The “re-treeing” of this formerly industrial area is exciting. Engaged citizens can accomplish a lot – and Scott’s Addition is one engaged community.
