We Did It!
We planted 94 trees in Derry Township over the last six weeks. We worked in teams on beautiful Saturday mornings, and some worked during the week to catch up and solve problems. Volunteers from Kiss Hershey Back joined us at one point, as did the helpers from the county probation office and the SouthPoint homeowners association, and the Lions Club folks stuck with us all spring. The township staff provided invaluable assistance when they took the trees to their locations with some mulch and dug the holes where they could.
Every person in town who wanted a tree got one (or two). It was great fun to talk with the homeowners and passersby, because we received such positive feedback (and we got to take a break from digging holes). The word is getting out about this great deal for homeowners, businesses and the environment.
We learned a lot about ordering, deploying and planting trees. But we need your ideas for how we can do things better in the future. Please take a minute to share your thoughts on improvements for next year by leaving a confidential comment at the bottom of the page.
