Please join us at one of the RAP reLEAF Community kick-off meetings, either May 15 from 6 — 7:30 p.m. or May 16 from Noon — 1:30 p.m.
Guests will include Urban Forester Richard Leon and Kathleen McGovern.
RAP is initiating this grass roots effort to get neighbors involved to identify the public areas on their blocks or near their homes where trees might be planted, and for which they are willing to help water and nourish the trees. This will include street right of ways, parks and river easements – anywhere there is room for another tree. We’ll then take that information, and work with the City’s Urban Forester to identify the right tree for the right location, which is critical for the long term tree health…
RAP’s vision is to plant 400+ trees over the next year, and have our streets lined with distinctive and appropriate trees that will be sure to add to the beauty and walkability of the neighborhood.
Following the location targeting effort, the specific plan will be developed, and RAP will work with the City and Councilman Love to seek funding via the City’s Tree Mitigation Fund, which currently has funding to be made accessible to communities for tree plantings around the city.
Tree Planting will be targeted for the next planting season, November through March.
