Massive Tree Planting by ReTree This Saturday

The sixth seasonal reforesting of the Western New York Area by
Re-Tree WNY commences this Saturday in 13 municipalities and the City of

1,700 street trees will be planted by the all-volunteer army
trained and assembled by Re-Tree WNY and includes the efforts of 48 City of
Buffalo block clubs. 

Trees are being off-loaded on Thursday and Friday at two sites,
1120 Seneca Street near Babcock in South Buffalo and 1042 North Forest near
Sheridan in Williamsville. 
Distribution to all locations will be done from these addresses.  

Planting in all areas will be at 9AM on Saturday, and will
continue until complete.  Some
municipalities are extending the effort to additional days, as-needed.  The Tonawanda planting will be around
the Parker Boulevard area and is coordinated with Bradley Rowles,
Superintendent of Highways with the Town of Tonawanda.  One large Buffalo planting is a
coordinated effort between Councilman David Rivera, The Green Fund, Grassroots
Gardens, PUSH, and the Grant/Ferry Neighborhood Association.

Anyone who still wishes to volunteer is being directed to any of
the three major plantings: gather at the Re-Tree WNY 14th Street Tree Farm (307
14th Street between Vermont and Rhode Island Streets) for the City of Buffalo;
at 333 Dexter Terrace in Tonawanda; or Union & North Forest Roads (Forest
Elementary School) in Williamsville. 

All sites gather at 9AM – come dressed to plant, with gloves
and equipment.
