DSC01688The third annual Sustainable Neighborhoods Spring tree planting on Burnet Rd will take place on Saturday, March 9, from 9 AM to noon. Please come help out! We will organize in the parking lot at 6547 Burnet (just south of the old Elsi’s location), form teams, and then fan out to several sites.

We are planting 27 trees from 1-gallon containers. The work is pretty light. But pick-axes are always in short supply if you can bring one. They are ideal for clearing grass, after which hand-trowels are well suited to plant the trees. Once the tree is planted, we install a device called a waterboxx to help irrigate the treeduring its first year.
