Second Saturday Tree Care Day at Semple

October 12, 2019

The Second Saturday Tree Care Day was held at Robert Semple Elementary School, where students and neighbors helped plant trees around the playfied on the Semple campus back in 2013.  On October 12, volunteers found the trees growing well.  21 trees were mulched.  Mulching helps reduce weeds and retain soil moisture.  A Tree Care Day will be planned this winter to prune, after the deciduous trees loose their leaves.  Below are before/after pictures for one of the Incense cedars that was mulched.
