We have heard from our community that the tree canopy and green initiatives are important. One of the organizations in the city doing great work in this area is LEAF (yourleaf.org). Here is some information they asked us to pass along regarding their tree planting program and native shrub bundles.
LEAF’s subsidized Backyard Tree Planting Program helps you get the right tree in the right place. For approximately $150 to $220 per tree you will get a site consultation in your yard with an arborist, a five to eight foot tall tree (or two to four feet tall for evergreen trees) and full planting service. LEAF also has a Do-It-Yourself option, for those who like to get their hands dirty! For more information visit LEAF.
This spring, beautify your yard with a LEAF Native Shrub Bundle.
Native Bee – pre-determined shrubs designed to provide habitat and food for native bees year round
Edible – shrubs of your choice to best suit your taste buds
EACH BUNDLE INCLUDES
Four lovely native shrubs for the price of three
Free delivery right to your door
Specific shrub fact sheet to help acheive your garden goals
Mulch and an illustrated planting and care guide
Supplies are limited, and bundles are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To order visit LEAF.
