Garabaldi Park Aftercare - June 11, 2016

Project type: 
Tree Care and Maintenance
Year: 
2016
Season: 
Spring
Location: 
Northwest

ReForest London was joined once again by Citi Cards as part of a worldwide day of volunteer initiatives by Citi teams. Citi cards participated in aftercare at Garibaldi Park to ensure the previously planted trees and shrubs have the best chance of survival.

Garibaldi was previously planted in 2015 in an initiative to increase the ecological buffer in this storm water management area thereby reducing water pollution and flooding in the storm water pond on site. Planting native trees and shrubs around storm water ponds can also protect them from excessive temperature increase (meaning cooler water for fish and invertebrates!) and accumulation of debris.

This energetic team weeded, mulched, and replaced tree collars with enthusiasm making sure the native trees were healthy and happy. Thanks Citi Cards!
