Native Tree Seedling Giveaway

 

Weekdays through Fri. Jun 19, 2020
9 AM. - Noon

 

Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum, 
1465 Brush Hill Rd., Milton 



To honor the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day
thanks to the Blue Hills Climate Acton Coalition and REI Co-Op
 

Choose from four native species of deciduous plants (Northern Red Oak-tall at maturity, Red Maple-tall, River Birch-med., and Serviceberry-low) and a naturalized conifer, Norway Spruce-tall. Native trees have co-evolved over time with native wildlife species and provide the best food and shelter.  

Social distancing protocols will be followed; please wear a mask.  People will stay in their cars and simply drive though. Volunteers will load potted trees into your trunk. There is a limit to two trees per family.  Please plant trees promptly, instructions provided!  For more information or questions:
www.bluehillsclimateaction.org or call 617-967-4578

Here’s a great summary about the benefits of trees put out by the Earth Day 50 Network:  https://www.earthday.org/5-reasons-we-need-trees-for-a-healthy-planet/

 

 

 
Plant a tree for the Class of 2020, this year’s HS and college graduates who were asked to sacrifice proper closure and recognition to save their families (and yours!), taking pressure off of healthcare workers and reducing the risk to other critical employees who were already putting themselves on the line on a daily basis (Plant a Tree for them too!!).

Plant a tree to commentate the year the US (& many thousands worldwide) stood out, kneeled and marched together to say Enough!  It’s [beyond] time to address racist policing in the US.

Plant a tree because they: clean the air, create shade (lowering cooling costs); act as a wind break; feed and provide shelter for local species; create a welcoming feel in areas where humans have created the built environments we inhabit, travel through and work within; all of this while quietly storing the carbon we exhale from our bodies, vehicles, homes and other buildings, factories and energy production operations, etc.

Give back to the Earth what humankind has chopped down.

These tree seedlings are FREE, thanks to a grant the Blue Hills Climate received from the REI Co-Op.


Admittedly we’ve been distracted by a pandemic (nature’s way of telling us things are out of balance?) but this year marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.  Perhaps you would like to Plant a Tree in honor of that?
