Angry Agency, a punk-ska band, organizes a benefit concert every year. This year, ReForest London was the group chosen to be the beneficiary of the concert, which was held on December 2, 2005 at Call the Office. The concert made over $1,300, and band members decided not only to donate the money to ReForest London, but to be involved in planning the planting project.

Band members and volunteers recruited by the band, along with volunteers from the neighbourhood and throughout London planted more than 115 trees as Jaycee Park, near where many of the band members grew up.

About 25 volunteers planted over 100 trees.

A heavy layer of mulch was placed around all the trees to help them get through the winter.

Two makes the job go faster.

Band members can dig as well as play.
