Plant trees with Public Lands

Friday, October 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Tree Pitts­burgh and Pub­lic Lands to plant trees on Neg­ley Run Boulevard!

Please reg­is­ter here so we know to expect you.

Over the sum­mer Tree Pitts­burgh, vol­un­teers, and a herd from Alleghe­ny GOATscape pushed back inva­sive plant pop­u­la­tions to pre­pare this site for plant­i­ng trees this fall. This is one of 4 plant­i­ngs on Neg­ley Run Boule­vard this fall.

This project will be RUGGED. Vol­un­teers must wear long pants, close-toed shoes or boots, and weath­er-appro­pri­ate cloth­ing (jack­ets, gloves).

Tree Pitts­burgh will pro­vide tools, equip­ment, and work gloves. Please feel free to bring your work gloves too.

Brief Site History

In the ear­ly 1900s, Neg­ley Run Blvd’s north side was lined with numer­ous homes, demol­ished around the mid­dle of the cen­tu­ry. After the demo­li­tion of these homes, this area was incor­po­rat­ed into High­land Park, becom­ing a part of the park’s wood­ed south­ern arm.

Fol­low­ing the demo­li­tion of the homes, inva­sive plants moved into the dis­turbed area and have spent the last 50+ years spread­ing and crowd­ing out native canopy trees that would oth­er­wise offer a health­i­er for­est ecology.
