VPIS to Kick Off Spring Tree Program Volunteering

Falls Church Village Preservation and Improvement Society’s Neighborhood Tree Program has announced its spring schedule of volunteer mulching and planting events.

Tree mulching will take place Saturday, March 16, starting at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers can meet on Sherrow Avenue at Westmoreland Road and help to refresh the mulch rings around young trees by pulling away weeds, pruning basal suckers, and applying mulch, as well as hauling containers of mulch from the truck to the trees.

Tree planting events are scheduled for Saturday, April 6, and Saturday, April 20.

Those interested in volunteering should wear boots or heavy shoes, gloves, and clothes that can get dirty. Volunteers may bring their own tools, but tools will be provided. Child volunteers must be chaperoned.

For more information, contact Seth Heminway, volunteer chair, at 703-389-7360.
