We are proud to announce that a few short weeks ago, we held our very first tree planting event! We partnered up with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County to plant trees in their community of homes that they are building in Tinnin Woods in Efland, NC. We have to give a shout-out to Habitat for paying for the trees as well as supplying tools, volunteers, and mulch to make this first event possible.
Thanks to the efforts of some very hard-working high school students, we were able to keep the rain away and plant all sixteen trees! We got to plant a variety of species, from beech to maple to dogwood and more. We will be checking back in on these trees in the next year to make sure they are happy and healthy. Please continue to follow along as we progress in this partnership and many others.
The general manager at MacGregor Downs told me he and his groundskeepers would find a spot between the clubhouse and the lake where you can demonstrate how to plant a tree on April 8. And he said that $100 wouldn’t be a problem for them He’ll get back to me, then I’ll share his contact information with you.
Thanks for sharing your great idea with me!!
