The city’s Adopt a Tree Program is on again! Get a tree planted for a mere $50 and the promise to water and care for your tree in its first year. The actual cost of the tree and planting is around $250, so this is a great deal. The tree even comes with a “gator bag” for watering
If you don’t need a tree in front of your own house at this time, consider adopting an empty tree well in the neighborhood or perhaps adopting a new tree for one of the parks. There is a limited amount of funding available for this program, so it is important to reserve your tree today. Planting a tree today is a gift to the neighborhood that can last for generations.
Thanks to Bill Conkle of the Friends of Jefferson Park for the tip!
