The deadline for block clubs and other organizations to order trees for the spring planting has been set for this Friday, March 8.
Any organization that has an interest in reforesting the public areas of Buffalo and the suburbs hit by the October 12, 2006 storm is urged to get in touch with Re-Tree WNY to place an order as soon as possible.
If the organization wishes to plant in the City of Buffalo, log onto www.re-treewny.org and access the “Calendar” section for the link to request trees.
Suburbs should contact their Re-Tree WNY Community Coordinator or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nearly one thousand trees are available for the spring planting, which is set for April 13, 2013.
Re-Tree WNY is a program of 501(c)3 charity Keep WNY Beautiful. It was established to reforest the Buffalo metropolitan area as a result of the devastating October 12-13, 2006 surprise snowstorm. Re-Tree WNY has planted a total of 24,991 of their 30,000 tree goal. Their website is www.re-treewny.org.
