In April 2016, Trees Please organized a tree planting to launch our project. Working with the City of Hamilton and their forestry department, we scoped out a few spots and found some space in front of United Way’s office on Rebecca Street.
Staff from Forestry arranged for two Kentucky Coffee Trees, supplied some equipment, mulch and water. It was great to meet some of their staff and witness their professionalism and dedication to the job.
A number of dignitaries came out to show their support for our project that is supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
UPDATE: We recently stopped by to check in on the Kentucky Coffee Trees and we are happy to report that they survived their first year and started producing buds.
Go Kentucky Coffee Trees!
