Kendall Historic District Tree Planting Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
The Kendall District in Muskogee is actually where the University of Tulsa had its beginnings. The Tree Board, Muskogee Parks Department, and the Kendall Neighborhood Association will plant trees on the Boulevard and in the center medians to help this neighborhood regain its forest diversity. In addition, Forestry Division arborists will teach proper pruning techniques to the volunteers and will aid in pruning and reshaping the larger right-of- way trees to help these trees regain some of their pre-Ice Storm ’07 form.

Date: October 25, 2008
Time: 8:00 a.m.
Location: the center flagpole.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
