Tree Pitts­burgh’s One Tree Per Child Pro­gram invites you to join us at Churchill Val­ley Green­way this Spring to plant 150 con­tainer­ized trees with stu­dents from local schools. This project is pre­sent­ed through a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Alleghe­ny Land Trust, Wood­land Hills School Dis­trict, Com­mu­ni­topia, and the Wood­land Hills High School Cli­mate Action Team.

The plant­i­ng project will begin at 9:00 AM and end at 2:00 PM. Vol­un­teers are invit­ed to sup­port dig­ging holes and pro­tect­ing the baby trees after we plant them together.

Tree Pitts­burgh will pro­vide tools and work gloves. Feel free to bring your work gloves if you prefer.

This project will be RUGGED. Vol­un­teers must wear pants, close-toed shoes or boots, and weath­er-appro­pri­ate cloth­ing (rain jack­ets if need­ed). The event will hap­pen rain or shine unless there are thun­der­storms. In the case of an event can­cel­la­tion, Tree Pitts­burgh will noti­fy vol­un­teers via email.

Fund­ing for this project is pro­vid­ed by the Alleghe­ny Coun­ty Clean Air Fund and the Pitts­burgh Pen­guins “Score for the Trees” Program.

Site His­to­ry
Neigh­bors of the 151-acre Churchill Val­ley Green­way approached Alleghe­ny Land Trust to pro­tect this unique local land. Aban­doned for approx­i­mate­ly a decade, the coun­try club site had begun revert­ing to nat­ur­al green space and was already home to many species of native flo­ra and fau­na. Area res­i­dents made grass­roots efforts to raise aware­ness and dol­lars for pro­tect­ing Churchill Val­ley Green­way. On Earth Day 2021, that goal was real­ized – the funds were ful­ly grown, and ALT could pur­chase and pre­serve the land in June 2021. It will for­ev­er remain a green space for the health, well-being, and enjoy­ment of cur­rent res­i­dents and future gen­er­a­tions. (Source: ALT website)
