Sustainable Saratoga’s Tree Toga
Sustainable Saratoga’s Urban Forestry Project is celebrating our community’s resilience and hope for the future by putting trees in the ground at the homes of 15 excited Saratogian families, totaling 270 tree plantings since 2014. This year teams of planters will gather at each planting location, getting those trees into the ground, to be nurtured and cared for by the homeowners whose yards will host the trees. The care that Tree Hosts provide is critical to tree survival and the success of Sustainable Saratoga’s mission to preserve and expand Saratoga’s urban forest. Spring is a great time to plant your own tree. So why not join Tree Toga in spirit by planting one in your own yard, and sharing a picture of your new tree at #NextGenTree? Sustainable Saratoga recommends planting a variety of trees native to our local forests, as well as a few of those from the wider region, that are adapted to our soils and climate and provide food and shelter for a variety of insects and wildlife. You can find a wealth of practical information on choosing, buying, planting and caring for trees at: sustainablesaratoga.org/projects/urban-forestry-project/practical-info-for-tree-planting-care
