caring for our tree canopy
Fall 2019 Tree Planting
A Fall Tree Planting is scheduled for October 19, 2019. Property owners in the East Row or extending from the East Row to Monmouth Street and south to 11th street can order a tree for their tree lawn ( area between sidewalk and the street). Each tree costs $50.
This planting is funded by the East Row Garden Club, the East Row Historic Foundation, a generous Duke Energy Foundation grant of $10,000, individual property owners and generous support from the City of Newport.
The selection of trees is made by an arborist. We plant trees that are suitable for the urban environment and the individual site, i.e. under power lines we will plant smaller tree varieties but elsewhere we will plant large trees that will enhance our canopy.
Property owners may order up to 4 trees. Larger orders are possible but must be approved by the Tree Revitalize committee. Since the trees are purchase wholesale, they are not guaranteed although we have had astonishing success in previous plantings. Up to this time we have planted more than 350 trees across Newport.
2019 tree Orders are closed. The deadline is past and we have received orders for 102 trees - our maximum.
This is a volunteer project. We need volunteers to help distribute and plant trees, do setup and clean up and help with hospitality. Property owners who purchase trees are urged to volunteer.
If you have questions, email trees@EastRowGardenClub.org.
Success! 138 Trees planted by over 100 wonderful volunteers!
