SARATOGA SPRINGS —On Saturday, April 27, Sustainable Saratoga’s Urban Forestry Project will hold its 10th year of Tree Toga planting event, adding an expected 35 large-growing shade trees to the urban forest.

Volunteer Tree Planters are needed to help plant trees in the community. 

Volunteers will check in at Pitney Meadows Community Farm at 9:30 a.m. on April 27 and get a lesson in tree planting before heading off in small teams to their assigned locations across the city. Once the trees are in the ground, Tree Host homeowners and other volunteers provide the care that is critical to tree survival and the success of Sustainable Saratoga’s mission to preserve and expand Saratoga’s urban forest.

“This April’s Tree Toga will bring the total number of trees planted in the past 10 years to over 400.” said Sustainable Saratoga Urban Forestry Project Chair Caroline Rothaug, in a statement.

To get involved in this family-friendly community event, sign up at sustainablesaratoga.org/tree-toga.
