ReTree the District
ReTree the District is a community development initiative in Buffalo’s University District that has planted over 1,300 trees across the community. The project is reinvesting in our urban tree canopy, strengthening ties among neighbors, restoring our parks and greenspaces, and encouraging hands-on volunteerism.
Join us for our next planting day on April 27, 2019!
Please arrive @ 995 Kensington Avenue by 9AM on Saturday, April 27h.
There is limited onsite parking, so we encourage people to carpool. We will have everything on hand for the event (tools, gloves, etc.) Please plan to dress for the weather.
Groups will be registered and sent to planting locations along neighborhood streets with a team leader trained in the bareroot method of tree planting.
*A light breakfast and snacks will be provided.
