Trees Atlanta is planting two groves of trees on the Eastside Trail on December 15! This volunteer project is open to all, regardless of tree-planting experience. This is a free, family-friendly event that gets people involved in planting trees, gets them out in the sunshine, and gets them actively involved on the Atlanta BeltLine. Trees Atlanta is looking for 100-150 participants, so let’s support their newest addition to the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum!
The tree planting will be divided into two groups:
- The sassafras group will meet at the corner of Somerset Terrance and Angier Springs by the Eastside Trail. About 100 volunteers are needed. Full details are on Trees Atlanta’s event page.
- The longleaf pine group will meet near 680 Greenwood Avenue, 30306, and the Eastside Trail. About 50 volunteers are needed. Full details are on Trees Atlanta’s event page.
Volunteers should plan to arrive at 8:45 a.m. and bring their own water in a reusable container (no trash). There will be a demonstration at 9 a.m. on how to properly plant trees.
Maps are available at each link above. Please RSVP to Susan@treesatlanta.org to let Trees Atlanta know that you and your friends are coming!
