Marcy Holmes Tree Stewards help Brewing a Better Forest
The Marcy Holmes Tree Stewards are part of the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association, which is proud to support the dedicated volunteers whose mission is to protect their neighborhood's most vulnerable trees and ensure the longevity of the Urban Forest. We work to educate and engage residents, local businesses and other community groups with opportunities to continually improve the natural health of Marcy-Holmes.
The Marcy Holmes Tree Stewards will be printing tree tags and putting the tags on newly planted city trees. Brewing a Better Forest (TM) would like to Thank The Marcy Holmes Tree Stewards for their help and commitment to bettering the urban forest. THANKS!!!
"Tree Trust was created in 1976 to address two problems in our communities: the devastation of the urban tree canopy due to Dutch elm disease and the high unemployment and poverty rates for youth and adults at the time. We began combating these issues by hiring unemployed individuals and training them to plant trees and reforest the Twin Cities." - www.TreeTrust.org
