Tree Planting a great success!

Thanks to everyone who helped us with our tree planting day on Sat Oct 1st, 2016!    We planted 400 trees along the Red Hill Valley Trails.
A huge thanks to the Forestry Department at the City of Hamilton for the trees, mulch and water trucks.  Your team was amazing and it was heartening to work alongside the department to plant trees.  Thanks to Parks Department at the City for their Clean-up Trailer with shovels, a table and gloves for us.
Thanks to our volunteers who came out on a rainy day to get the trees into the ground.  We had close to 50 people come out, including a number of folks who were walking, cycling the trails and lent a helping hand.  Thank you so much!
Thanks to City Councillor, Sam Merulla and his team for sponsoring the refreshments and other infrastructure, like port-a-potties.

Thanks again!  It was a fun, productive day!

We call this photo “The Shovel Eater”.  Our volunteers, Pat, Kim and Hunter came with their tree planting gear and left with one of their shovels looking like this.  The ground was made of mostly rocks as this shovel can attest to.

The City of Hamilton’s Forestry Department selected some GREAT native trees to plant – hickories, oaks, pines, hackberries.  Thanks Forestry!
