Volunteers care for delicate WNY trees - Buffalo, NY

Volunteers care for delicate WNY trees |

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - There's no rest for these volunteers on this holiday weekend. They're donating their time to care for delicate trees that took a beating throughout this rough Western New York winter.

Paul Maurer of Re-Tree WNY said, "We're going to go along and re-stake the trees, make sure they're in good shape and put some more top soil on, and generally make it look great, like it already has started to look great on South Park Avenue in South Buffalo."

Re-Tree WNY joined with Keep WNY Beautiful to create a Spring cleaning army of almost 30 strong. And they're not just focusing on flora. A two mile stretch of South Park Ave. between Ridge Road and Bailey Avenue recently underwent a $2.5 million dollar revitalization project to improve the quality of life in South Buffalo, and now these residents are trying to keep it all looking tidy.
