Volunteer Tree Planting: Negley Run

Saturday, November 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join us as we plant 100 trees on Neg­ley Run Boulevard!

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 event is the final plant­i­ng, bring­ing the total num­ber of trees to 365!

Reg­is­ter for this event here so we know to expect you.

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.
