Add to Calendar   04/30/2019 06:30 PM 04/30/2019 07:30 PM America/New_York Tree Top Talk

 

We’re betting you already knew that Cleveland used to be called the FOREST CITY.  The West Side Tree Stewards (a band of local Sherwick Tree Steward Training program graduates) want to help Cleveland’s

Eco-Village and Detroit-Shoreway Community RE-FOREST the City —for all the many benefits that trees bestow on any urban neighborhood, and because we just LOVE trees.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

  • Come to the Tree Top Talk to learn about the RE-Forest project, more about the value of trees in the urban landscape, and how YOU can get involved.

             Tuesday, April 30th at 6:30 pm—in the Sanctuary of Calvary Reformed Church, 1918 W. 65th St.

  • Come out to help us plant new trees on Sunday, May 19th, on Pear and Wakefield Avenues. Please call 216.515.8300 or email dwatson3606@gmail.com to sign up to volunteer.
  • Help us plan for future plantings on other neighborhood streets where residents want more trees!

 

BACKGROUND:

Cleveland’s tree canopy (the layer of tree leaves and branches that cover the ground when viewed from above) has degraded over time. Detroit Shoreway in particular has a low 19% canopy cover. Trees not only bring beauty, but improve the environment that we live in and reduce utility costs significantly. If you are interested in learning more about trees in Cleveland, you can take a look at the Cleveland Tree Plan at http://www.clevelandtrees.org/cleveland-tree-plan/.

 

A group of neighbors have completed the Sherwick Tree Steward Training Program led by Western Reserve Land Conservancy and Holden Forests & Gardens. Through this program we learned how to properly plant, care for, and maintain neighborhood trees. With support from the Land Conservancy, Holden Forests & Gardens, as well as Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, and Councilman Matt Zone, we’re aiming to put our training to work and build Cleveland’s tree canopy in our neighborhood.

 

We would appreciate your support in this tree planting – with hopes that we can work together to live in a more beautiful neighborhood. You may choose to participate in the planting, which will occur on Sunday, May 19th and/or you may choose to take the free training to become a Tree Steward yourself (next class starts May 6th! See https://www.wrlandconservancy.org/whatwedo/reforest-our-city/sherwick-tree-steward-trainings/ ).  Tree Stewards conduct community organizing, education, tree plantings and help ensure care for the trees we plant.  We can also advise you on the care of other trees you may have on your property.
