We are very proud to announce our Coal City Green program for 2016! This year on Arbor Day, Fri Apr 29, we will be partnering with local partners iTrees.com, ComEd & Davey Resource Group to plant 90 trees across the community of Coal City.
In the wake of the devastating tornado last summer, thousands of trees were lost. Several local partners have joined together to help make Coal City GREEN again! The trees planted in the tornado destroyed neighborhoods can now begin to rise up & bring new life to the city streets.
We also have an exciting update about the CommuniTrees Partner Program with iTrees.com! Purchases from the program last year have already begun to benefit the streets of Coal City! On this Arbor Day Spring Grove Nursery & iTrees.com will be using the trees earned through the CommuniTrees Partner Program to replant Broadway Street. We will be donating & planting trees along the stretch of Broadway that used to be lined with so many beautiful big trees. Once again, you will begin to see some new life rise up & grace your city streets.
In an effort to rebuild a healthy urban canopy, the trees have been especially selected to provide beauty & shade for many years to come. You will notice that shorter, utilityfriendly trees will be planted along the east side under the utility lines. Shade trees will line the west side. We specifically picked out a diverse selection of trees instead of lining the street with all of the same kind of trees. This will insure that the canopy will be healthy for many years to come & will not be subject to disease or pests that feed on a certain tree which might jeopardize the trees in the future. The variety of trees will also add beauty & changing features throughout the seasons. We hope that you enjoy the new canopy as it grows & flourishes along Broadway!
