Tree Planting News

2021 Planting!

AP Environmental Science students from Hastings High School buddied with Hillside 2nd graders to plant 130 tree seedlings.
HWRP volunteers planted the rest of the heeled-in tree nursery. See the species we're planting in this first round on our Replanting page. Altogether we planted over 350 seedlings!

Thanks to our students, parent event volunteers, and Mayor Armacost for lending their hands! And to our fantastic HWRP volunteers.

Watering is Critical




HHS PE classes to the rescue! HHS Phys Ed classes watered the seedlings as needed, or three times a week in dry weather, through the end of school.

A big thank you to Mr. McCann and Mr. Kiely for engaging their PE students in Hillside Woods! The trees would not have survived without them.
