Central Terminal is site of Re-Tree Planting kick-off

This Friday marks the 20th volunteer tree planting by Re-Tree. The special planting of 25 Morton Maple Trees is just the beginning of a full weekend of plantings. Altogether, 500 trees will be planted throughout the city. 

The Central Terminal planting is made possible thanks in part to funding provided by Gintzler International, a custom label and product identification packaging solutions company based in WNY. The company is celebrating its 100 Year Anniversary. 

“We realize we have successfully grown as a company for over a century due to the ongoing support we have received from our incredible staff, customers, vendors, and communities we serve,” says Mary Scheible, CAO of Gintzler International. “As an organization that embraces the notion of sustainable initiatives and is committed to environmental consciousness efforts, we are honored to help reforest our beautiful community.”

The Central Terminal planting is also made possible thanks to Pete Baschmann of Baschmann Services Inc. The company is donating time and equipment to prepare the holes.

Altogether the plantings will be a combined effort between Re-Tree, Gintzler International, Buffalo Central Terminal Restoration Corporation and Boy Scouts of America.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.

    Is there a landscape architect on board? I hope they’re not just planting them anywhere!

    Now if they could add some flowering trees to the area as well it would even be better.
