Moving Day: Simonton Street Tree Nursery

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

After sev­en won­der­ful years, we are say­ing a bit­ter­sweet good­bye to our Point Breeze Her­itage Nurs­ery loca­tion. This spe­cial site was the orig­i­nal home for our seedling nurs­ery, after we were award­ed a small Sprout Fund grant in 2010 to start grow­ing trees. Since then it has been the home to thou­sands of tree seedlings, with count­less vol­un­teer and staff hours spent tend­ing to them. The Her­itage Nurs­ery pro­gram has also grown beyond our wildest dreams to include a sec­ond loca­tion in Lawrenceville and a full-fledged pro­duc­tion facil­i­ty. Although our orig­i­nal site nes­tled among the trees in Point Breeze is close to our hearts, we have made the deci­sion to cen­tral­ize our grow­ing oper­a­tion at our main cam­pus in Lawrenceville. We are grate­ful to the com­mu­ni­ty for wel­com­ing our lit­tle nurs­ery for the past sev­er­al years, and to Rox­ane Pearsall for gen­er­ous­ly allow­ing us to use this site free of cost for all these years.

Come help us say farewell to our Point Breeze site on July 18th when we will be host­ing two vol­un­teer events to help move over 3,000 seedlings to Lawrenceville. For more details, please con­tact our Nurs­ery Direc­tor, Megan Palo­mo at megan@treepittsburgh.org.
