April 20th 2pm – 3pm
Nine Mile Run Watershed Association is hosting a Tree Planting Workshop through its Citizen Tree Project, an initiative to plant 100 small yard trees on private property in Edgewood, Swissvale, and Wilkinsburg, and begin to restore lost urban tree canopy. The workshop will cover the basics of tree planting and tree care through the first few years of establishment. Participants can register to plant a tree and attend the workshop by visiting tinyurl.com/CitizenTreeProject or ninemilerun.org/our-work/
urbanforestry/citizen-tree- project/. Tree recipients will be paired with a site appropriate tree based on a short questionnaire, will receive watering implements and mulch to assist with establishment, and assistance with tree planting will be provided if necessary.
