2014 Class cancelled
The training committee regrets that there just were not enough registrations to warrant holding a class this year. The next class will be in 2015.
Six Tree Stewards and a citizen volunteer came out to the Greenleaf Park English ivy pull on January 6th. We were well equipped and warmly dressed for the work day. After about two hours of gratifying work we shared hot tea on the hillside and headed home to hunker down for the Arctic Vortex forecast for Tuesday where indeed the morning temperature reached 6 degrees. –JoAnn Dalley
Sandy Hausman of WVTF Public Radio did a short piece about the problems of English Ivy recently. You can hear her at http://wvtf.org/post/ivy-invasion.
How about making a New Year’s resolution to remove ivy from the trees in Greenleaf Park on Monday afternoon, January 6, 1:00-3:00pm? Tree Stewards started working there last November, but there’s plenty more work to be done. Contact JoAnn Dalley, project leader, if you have questions.
