Friends of Trees planting

It was a beautiful day, we planted 97 trees in Cully, Rose City Park and Roseway. Between donations from businesses and participants we were able to cover 100% of the costs and there is $15 left in our neighborhood fund for next year (Friends of Trees collects donations with tree orders and will forward that extra dollars to next year’s planting). The $300 that the neighborhood association set aside for the planting can be reallocated!
