PLANT TREES, PLANT HOPE.

Plant trees. Plant hope. 1500 Trees, has scheduled its second annual Fall Planting on November 14 at six different sites in Licking County, Ohio USA. Everyone is invited to support the project by contributing any amount for trees and/or participating in the outdoor or virtual dedication ceremony.
You can donate a tree in honor of a special occasion or in memory of a loved one, family, or friend. Orders received prior to November 2 will be included in the Saturday, November 14 planting session. Various levels of giving are detailed on the website.
Fall planting locations include: Land Lab, Granville Schools Licking Park District, Infirmary Mound Park, Maple Grove Cemetery, Cedar Hill Cemetery, Evans Bike Path along Route 16 in Newark Kendal Arboretum.
Trees provide numerous benefits beyond aesthetics: trees stabilize the soil, improve water quality, and take carbon dioxide out of the air to help reverse climate change. The 1500 Trees for Life public service project kicked off last fall at First Presbyterian Church, with a goal to plant 1,500 healthy native trees in public spaces in Licking County over the next five years. They plant donated trees twice a year, in the spring and fall. Hardy native trees ranging from 6’ to 15’ are procured at a discounted cost by horticulturalist Mike Flood, who is supervising the plantings. 





Tree Walks 
sponsored by 1500 Trees committee  10 am on Saturdays October 17, 24, and 31. Walks will be limited to 10-12 individuals. Registration is recommended by emailing 1500trees@gmail.com

Details: 

  • On October 17 and 31, Jeff Gill will be leading participants on an easy stroll around Raccoon Valley Park to discuss the softwoods found along the Licking River. Plan to park in the furthest parking lot of Raccoon Valley Park near the end of the Rotary Bridge and wear comfortable shoes that might get a little muddy. 
  • On October 24th, Jurgen Pape will be leading a Tree Walk focusing on the hardwoods found around the Village from the lower campus of Denison to the Granville and Buxton Inns. Participants will meet in the Opera House Park in the southeast corner of Broadway and Main Street.
