Southie Trees: A Year in Review

2012 was a year of achievement and successful advocacy for Southie Trees.

Spring projects included mulching and planting flowers along Broadway and the planting of 11 trees through the Grow Boston Greener Grant. During the summer, a Water-A-Tree Program was implemented, a deep root feed was held on Castle Island with Jason Mraz, and a survey of the street trees on West Broadway was conducted. In the fall, we planted trees with Excel High and South Boston Catholic Academy.

Southie Trees - Tree Planting

In all, Southie Trees planted 14 trees, mulched and cared for over a hundred more, and increased community involvement in preserving trees.

In light of Hurricane Sandy and other extreme weather events, Tech Networks has decided to redirect its efforts to tackle the broader issue of climate change in 2013. Going forward, we are grateful to Donna Brown and South Boston Neighborhood Development Corporation for sustaining the Southie Trees program. For more information, email southietrees1@gmail.com.
