Tree Planting at Richland Swim Club — CANCELED

Saturday, May 9, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Tree Tender


Volunteer with TreePittsburgh for a tree planting on May 9th!

This plant­i­ng will use 1–2 gal­lon con­tainer­ized trees and shrubs grown at the Tree Pitts­burgh Her­itage Nurs­ery to restore a wet­land area along the West Branch of Deer Creek near the Rich­land Swim Club.  In an area cur­rent­ly over­run with the inva­sive nar­row leaved cat­tail, this project will help replace this inva­sive mono­cul­ture with a diverse forest­ed wet­land habi­tat to improve down­stream water qual­i­ty and cre­ate high qual­i­ty habi­tat for local wildlife.

This project is made pos­si­ble with funds from DCNR’s Ripar­i­an For­est Buffer Program

Vol­un­teers are asked to bring a reusable water bot­tle, and to wear long pants they don’t mind get­ting dirty, boots or closed-toed shoes, and to dress for the weather.

Tree Pitts­burgh will pro­vide all tools, sup­plies and safe­ty gear need­ed for the project.

Vol­un­teers under the age of 18 must have a par­ent or guardian with them at sign-in.

Any ques­tions, please con­tact erin@treepittsburgh.org or call (412) 781-TREE (8733).
