Deloitte Nurtures Celebration Forest

Project type: 
Tree Care and Maintenance
Year: 
2012
Season: 
Fall
Location: 
Southeast

On Friday, September 28th, ReForest London was joined by a group of 22 volunteers from Deloitte to perform aftercare services on trees in the Celebration Forest. This unique naturalization site  is home to trees that have been planted in celebration and memory of people and pets.  For more information on our Gift of a Tree program, visit the Plant a Legacy section of our website. 

The Deloitte volunteers completed various tasks to help the forest survive and grow including removing weed competition and adding a layer of mulch around the base of each tree, applying tree collars and animal repellant (Skoot) to tree trunks to minimize damage from rodents and deer, planting some infill and replacement trees, and removal of invasive plant species where possible.  The group was diligent in their tasks, and once the work was done, the transformation was remarkable!

A big THANK YOU goes out to all Deloitte staff who took part in the day.  Your efforts are sincerely appreciated not only by ReForest London, but by all those who have planted  trees in the Celebration forest as a living legacy.
