Tree Davis Kicks Off Planting Season with a Bike Tour
Tree Davis will kick-off its 2021-22 tree planting season with a tree-themed bike tour.
Beginning at 8:30 am on Saturday, September 25, coffee and donuts will be served under the shade of a 22-year old Texas red oak and thornless mesquite at 1009 Kent Dr. At 9 am, Dr. Greg McPherson will lead a 6-mile tour with stops at nine Great Trees to share their stories. The tour will finish at the Farmer’s Market at 11:00am.
Tree Davis has asked residents to nominate Great Trees and 33 specimens have been recorded in one of four categories: Unusual Size, Species, Form and History. The Great Tree Search is helping residents better understand and appreciate the educational, environmental, and cultural contributions of our trees. It is also a perfect way to connect with community while doing what we do best in Davis – riding our bikes!
Sign up for the Great Tree Search Bike Tour at https://www.treedavis.org/volunteer/. While you’re there, check out our many weekend opportunities to plant and steward local trees this season.
Erin Donley Marineau, Ph.D., is the Executive Director of Tree Davis
