Replanting with a plan Worcester Telegram - Worcester,MA,USA
That’s all it takes to successfully plant a tree, right?
Actually, it’s a bit more complicated than that, and experts are urging Worcester residents to plant carefully as they begin restoring trees to neighborhoods where about 20,000 trees have been cut down in recent months to fight the Asian longhorned beetle.
To get things started on the right foot, the nonprofit Worcester Tree Initiative is kicking off its privately funded tree-planting campaign from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow with a festival at Burncoat High School, 179 Burncoat St. Volunteers will plant 150 trees in the neighborhood, and the group will give away 150 trees to individuals who register and complete a 20-minute workshop on tree planting. Transportation company CSX Corp. is donating all the trees, and once all the trees are distributed, the initiative will give residents vouchers that can be redeemed for trees.
