in Community/Featured/Headline

CityTrees, the nonprofit that has organized volunteer urban tree-planting events that have planted 2,800 trees in Redwood City since 2000, is inviting residents to help out at its next planting event on Saturday, Feb. 24.

Trees will be planted from 9 a.m. to noon. Once registered for the event, you will receive an email with the meeting location.

CityTrees will provide a light breakfast and water, as well as planting tools, gloves and safety vests, which must be worn by volunteers at all times during the planting.

Volunteers are required to wear closed-toe shoes and are encouraged to wear long sleeves, long pants, hats, and sun protection. Children 10 and older are welcomed as long as a parent or guardian is also present at the event. There are currently six available spots still open.

CityTrees not only organizes plantings, but also the maintenance of trees.
