Burlington, VT (May 20, 2006)- Branch Out Burlington! was formed in 1996 and is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. They are a group of volunteers who help plant and care for the trees of Burlington. Their goal is to promote a vision of a city graced by a variety of beautiful and healthy trees, and a citizenry actively involved with the perpetual expansion and preservation of their urban forest.
For the past four years, a group of volunteers gathers in early May to plant saplings that will be transplanted from the Burlington Community Tree Nursery to the streets of Burlington in about 3 years. The Burlington Community Tree Nursery was established in May 2001 to provide a sustained source of low-cost trees to plant along Burlington’s streets by Branch Out Burlington!
