planting a tree

On Saturday, I got to be part of a special event: planting a tree in a city park.

Bringing the tree to its new home

Measuring the root ball so we could dig the right size hole

Moving the tree into the hole

The root ball is unwrapped. Sorry I don't have shots of filling the hole, but I had a shovel in my hand.

Putting mulch in place

Water is soaking in

The Treekeepers class has been a great learning experience. I'm looking forward to going to volunteer workdays starting next month. This class is almost over, but the next series will be in the spring at Warren Park.
