We spent another October tree planting with our friends from Baltimore Tree Trust. In fact, tree planting on city streets has kind of become our thing. We’ve learned it takes some serious muscle and ingenuity on how to best remove the concrete underground and roll that tree into the hole. Luckily we had some help from the neighborhood kids who showed us how it was done. This month 150+ volunteers planted 100 street trees in the Biddle Street Community at the intersection of N. Kenwood Avenue and E. Chase Street. If you’re in the neighborhood look for our handiwork!
After the tree planting we headed to the Chasseur to check out their new rooftop space. We had a good group who enjoyed happy hour specials while celebrating a job well done.
Interested in learning more about Baltimore Tree Trust? They do tree planting events all the time and are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers. Their mission is to restore Baltimore’s urban forest through increased tree planting, community engagement, and advocacy. Since their inception, they have planted over 4,000 trees on private property and in disadvantaged neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City.
