Neighborhood, City Join for Tree Planting

Carmel, IN (October 17, 2008)- As part of NeighborWoods Month, Carmel, its Urban Forestry Committee and Fairgreen Trace homeowners are partnering for a tree planting in Fairgreen Trace at 9am Saturday. This event is among regreening efforts nationwide in October, which has been declared National NeighborWoods Month by the national nonprofit Alliance for Community Trees.

A total of 33 trees will be planted along Fairgreen Drive and Quail Glen Court. An additional 25 trees and 45 shrubs will be planted along the Monon Greenway as a buffer for the Monon Farms neighborhood. Neighborhood residents chose what species of trees to plant from a list. They also agreed to water them for at least a year. The trees planted along the Monon Greenway will be maintained by the Parks Department.
This is the 13th year for Carmel’s fall neighborhood tree planting program.
The city also assumes responsibility for pruning and replacing these trees.
