Tree Planting a Success!

THANK YOU so much to:
Marion County MN volunteers Bruce, John, Melissa, Paul, and Randy
Mon county MN volunteers Barbara and 12 yr old daughter Lexie
Parks and Rec representative Calvin
one fellow out fishing at Guyses Run- Joey
who all picked up shovels and topsoil and planted 100 trees in 6 hours time!

It was a beautiful sunny, warm day for planting!

Among the trees planted were Dogwood, Choke Cherry, Red Oak and Sugar Maple- great trees for beautification, wildlife habitat and resource.

Trees were planted on Parks And Rec public property along the new Gateway Connector, throughout the Wave Tech Park and Guyses Run Fishing Park- all in Marion County.

Follow up care will be provided by Parks and Rec staff and include installation of protection tubes as well as continued watering and mulch applications. Progress reports will be submitted to the Treeways Project by Marion County Master Naturalists.

A great Big THANK YOU to Freed's Greenhouse for donating the potting soil and Tree-Tone Natural fertilizer as well as some mulch to ensure the trees get off to a great start! Honeybee Landscaping also pitched in with all the tools and planting equipment as well as some Holly-Tone natural fertilizer for the Dogwood trees.

Thanks again to a group effort, a great job done by all that will benefit our wildlife for years to come!
