Common Ground First Planting – September 2007

Shortly after Treez Please was founded in the summer of 2007, our Founding Mother, Atty. Debra Weaver, contacted David Reese who said he would be glad to donate two vacant lots he owned to initiate our reforestation efforts.

The two adjacent properties on the corner of Broadway and Kensington Avenues on the city’s North Side were dubbed Common Ground, and in September, we planted our first trees – with the help of a dozen enthusiastic volunteers. We put in:

2 bur oak
2 red oak
3 redbud
2 hawthorn
2 black locust
3 tulip
3 dawn redwood
3 grey dogwood
