Do you want to get trees for FREE planted in your right-of-way or front yard? SOUL (Sustaining Our Urban Landscape) offers FREE 15g trees to be planted in the right-of-way (the grassy strip between the sidewalk and the street) outside of residential properties. These trees are planted by community volunteers on fun Saturday plantings, and they are easy to take care of – simply water your tree 2x a week for a year, mulch it once every couple of months, and you are good to go!
Planting schedule: February 6 – permits due for Bywater/St Claude/St Roch/7th Ward February 23 – Planting date for Bywater/St Claude/St Roch/7th Ward (9:30 am – 1pm)
SOUL will handle every step of the process for you. Download your tree permit from soulnola.org, and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org. SOUL will then consult with you on the right kind of tree for your house (we offer 9 different species), have your utilities marked, and plant the tree on our Saturday plantings. Have questions? Call our Program and Outreach Coordinator, Julia, at 504 356 2073, or email her at email@example.com. Want to volunteer? Sign up online via soulnola.org/volunteer.
