Calendar of TREES Events-2016
TREES Inc. has closed the book on its first quarter of a century of service as a non-profit environmental volunteer group serving Terre Haute and Vigo County. The classic 101 Trees on the Indiana Veterans Memorial Mile were weeded, mulched and pruned. Trees were planted at the Paul Dresser home in Fairbanks Park, two "Keep Terre Haute Beautiful" liter cleanups were conducted, and invasive species eradication events were held. New trees were planted along S. Fruitridge Ave. at Deming Park, Earth Day educational activities were presented, and a special presentation to OLLI at Westminster Village was conducted. A TREES photo contest was held and Dogwood Point in Deming Park was rededicated. TREES Inc. is thrilled to have shared this special time with our many friends throughout this great community.
