Arbor Day Tree Planting


There’s nothing much better than planting hundreds of trees with happy second graders on a beautiful day!

On Arbor Day (4/25/2014), students from the Bronx Community Charter School enthusiastically planted hundreds of pin oak, sugar maple and persimmon tree saplings north of the Allerton Ballfields in the Bronx River Forest. Hurricane Sandy left holes in the forest canopy and this project, graciously funded by TD Bank, allowed us to replant native tree species before invasive plants take over.
