Another Tree Sale Success



The 2019 Fall Tree Sale was another stunning success for the Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards. Thirty volunteers set up shop early on Saturday, October 12, at the Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants at Tufton Farm. By mid-afternoon they had sold 266 trees and brought in $2,298 in total receipts. CATS also provided customers with multiple opportunities to learn about identifying, planting, and caring for trees. William Hamersky, chair of the CATS Education Committee, staffed a booth with educational materials and displays, while at an adjoining table Allen Ingling offered tips on planting and protecting young trees. In addition, Tom Wild and Tim Maywalt led two tree walks around the Tufton grounds.
