Because of the auction success, it is possible for the PTA to purchase and install mature shade trees for our Trailwood playground. This would provide our students and teachers much needed relief from the sun and cool the playground temperatures. At the April 9th PTA meeting the PTA members will vote on the purchase of trees. A quorum of at least 15 members is required so please attend the meeting! The meeting starts at 8:15 AM and the vote will be the first item on the agenda.
The trees will be approximately 20-25 feet tall which is the largest that can reasonably be transplanted. The species will be elm and/or swamp white oak. The drawing shows approximate locations of four trees. We will vote on a 2 tree option and a 4 tree option. The cost to supply and install each tree is $1200/tree. We hope the trees can be planted in the coming weeks! When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. When is the second best time to plant a tree? Today!
