Land Park lost a lot of trees during 2022/23’s winter storms.
The District Parks Commissioners are kicking off 916 week by hosting a tree planting on September 9th in Land Park. It will be located by Anne Rudin Peace Pond.
Joe Flores, our District 7 Parks Commission did a lot of work to organize the event, now we need you to come out and support the tree planting!
Here are the details from Joe:
This is the Phase 1 Tree Replacement Plan of the 70+ trees that fell during the extreme weather storms at the beginning of the year. This event is hosted by Councilmember Rick Jennings, Department of Youth, Parks and Community Enrichment, and me – the District 7 Parks Commissioner.
We will be setting up and kicking off the event at 14th Ave & 18th Street, next to the Mayor Anne Rudin Peace Pond. Set up time will start at 8am to help check in volunteers and other folks, with a 9am Welcome Messages & Thanks You’s by Councilmember Rick Jennings and Myself that will then lead into a demonstration of planting trees by the Parks Department then volunteers going to their planting zones after 9:30am.
We will have 22 trees to plant along 13th & 14th Ave from 18th Street to Freeport Blvd. – See attached PDFs. In addition to planting trees, there will also be mounds of mulch to also spread to existing trees along this route. Some of this mulch is the ground up trees of the 70 trees that fell – thus a full circle moment.
