From The Worcester Tree Initiative …

Join Congressman Jim McGovern … [and guests] as we celebrate the planting of our 30,000th tree! We are proud to say that we have accomplished that goal!

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Worcester Tree Initiative, Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), City of Worcester, and other agencies, we’ve met the goal, and 30,000 trees have been planted!!

To thank everyone who has helped us reach this milestone we will have a celebration on Monday, Oct 6,  9:30 am at Burncoat High School (179 Burncoat St.) – located in the heart of the ALB infestation area and the site of our very first Giveaway on April 25 2009.

Refreshments by Culinary Arts students from Worcester Technical High School will be provided.

The event will be accompanied by music from Burncoat High Students’ Quadrivium Chorus and String Ensemble along with a routine from the school’s Color Guard.

There is also a student art exhibit. Information from our local environmental groups will be provided at our tabling area.

The Celebration will be followed by an optional 30-minute bus tour of Reforested Burncoat and Greendale neighborhoods, courtesy of WRTA (RSVP required). Please join us as we celebrate this momentous achievement and thank you for your continuous support!
