VPIS Announces Fall Tree Planting Schedule

Falls Church tree planting volunteers will have a robust planting list this fall, according to a statement released by the F.C. Village Preservation and Improvement Society this week. Each event will begin with a brief demonstration and refreshments before teams fan out to plant trees. Dirt-friendly clothes, boots or heavy shoes and gloves are among the things suggested, and those with a long-handled shovel are encouraged to bring it. Still, there will be plenty of extra tools, and children must be chaperoned.

Tree planting events (in case of heavy or steady rain the rain date will be the following Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.) are: 1. Saturday October 24 at 8:30 a.m. in back of TJ Elementary School (223 W Cameron Rd., Falls Church City, 2. Saturday November 7 at 8:30 a.m. to meet at 1015 Parker St. Tree mulching events will be Friday November 13 at 10:30 a.m. in Cherry Hill Park located behind City Hall in Falls Church City, 311 Park Ave. at the pavilion behind Cherry Hill Farm House), a special event where VPIS will host MVLE, an organization that provides support to disabled adults and Saturday November 21 at 8:30 a.m. Cherry Hill Park (tentative).
