This week is Tree Week across the pond, but the spirit of promoting the planting, spreading, and maintaining of healthy trees is alive and well here in New Haven. The City of New Haven and the Urban Resources Institute (URI) have teamed up to provide free tree planting for residents.
Want to get a street tree planted nearby? All you have to do is fill out this quick form (and add a little water). Here's what URI has to say:
Want some shade this summer? Request a free tree to be planted in front of your home! The tree will be professionally planted for FREE by the Urban Resources Initiative's GreenSkills planting crews! The only thing you have to do is water the tree once a week while it has leaves (May-October). If you're interested or have questions, please call us at 203-432-6189, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our website: http://environment.yale.edu/uri/get-involved/plant-your-own-tree/. We will begin inspecting planting sites for our spring planting season as soon as the snow melts. Request a tree as soon as possible to get on the list!
