This is the Red Oak at River Walk that needed our help. We began our work session by learning about the complexities of tree root health. 14 community members learned how to support healthy trees in their own yards. Then we got to work . . . Ward’s Nursery contributed cardboard, bags of mulch, and organic fertilizer. Tom Ingersoll used a pneumatic drill to aerate the severely compacted soil. Volunteers shoveled organic compost into wheelbarrows. Several trips were needed to get the compost in place. Tree committee members, Holly Hamer and Eva Ward, rake compost into place. Hardworking volunteers bask in the joy of a job well done. River Walk intern Olivia Conforti thanks Tom with a bouquet of locally grown flowers.
