Honor a loved one through Plant-a-Tree program
Sustainable Claremont is inviting residents to beautify and help the city’s environment by participating in its Plant-a-Tree program.
The effort was launched recently and is “made possible through a generous donation from the estate of Ray and Barbara Fowler,” the nonprofit’s website read. “This program will enable us to expand our urban forest.”
The program is simple and calls for the community to donate funds to plant new city trees, which begins at $250 for one or $500 for two.
“With your direct donation, we will plant a tree that will capture carbon to fight climate change, provide habitat for native wildlife, offset urban heat, and provide shade and beauty for local neighborhoods,” the website read.
Residents can also plant trees through the program to honor loved ones, help companies fulfill community service initiatives, or simply because they want the benefits of a new city tree.
“With your donation, you will receive a special certificate, information on the type and location of the new tree, and a special acknowledgement for the person or business for whom the donation is dedicated,” the website read. Residents don’t need a specific reason to plant a new tree and can donate any amount they choose.
Don’t wait to invest in this program since trees bring benefits for generations!
