Come celebrate the 6th Anniversary of The Greenwich Tree Conservancy and help us support the 2013 Educational Iniative "Right Tree, Right Place" matching the correct tree to the conditions of a given site.
This year, the Tree Party, to be held Friday, April 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at McArdle’s Greenhouse, falls on the same day as Arbor Day and how very appropriate. There will be hors d’oeuvres, drinks, including “treetinis”, and guitar music to enliven this celebration of trees.
We have lost so many trees in the past years with our devastating storms but happily, together with the Town of Greenwich’s Tree Department, they have been able to plant 700 trees on public land. It should be noted that in addition to planting tree, the GTC supports maintaining and pruning existing trees in addition to planting the “Right Tree in the Right Place."
The concept of “Right Tree, Right Place” is that the tree selection be matched to the particular conditions at a given site, for instance, planting species that have short mature heights adjacent to utility infrastructures and roads while allowing progressively taller species at increasing distances from roads & wires.
The Greenwich Tree Conservancy is a non-profit organization, open to all interested citizens, that was created to preserve and enhance the tree and forest resources of Greenwich, Conneciticut in order to benefit the community, its health and its quality of life.
Tickets are available online at the Greenwich Tree Conservancy's website.
