Tree Stewards’ Tree Nursery
Robin Hanes writes: “The Tree Stewards’ wonderful Tree Nursery is nearby Jay Gillenwater’s Grandview Nursery. Manager Lester Henderson and his sons (seen l. to r., Chad, Joe and Matt), made frames to hold the tall pots up, built potting tables, hauled the soil into a walled mound and built a large tent. We just missed yesterday’s downpour at our big potting event. Huge thanks goes to Jay for his generosity, this temperate location and to Lester’s care all year long. They are the backbone of this project!
I must brag on the Potting Event Thursday. I counted 18 excellent volunteers! We potted 555 trees with 3 batches of extras healed in for the future. It took from 8 am to 12:30, leaving the place tidy, a multitude of trees given a kind world to start in. Now that is big canopy for the Charlottesville area. We are hoping for an Amazing Fall Tree Sale, in October!”
