It's Tree Time Again!

Many of the trees in our neighborhood were planted nearly a century ago! They won't last forever, in fact many trees have been knocked down by storms or died from disease or old age. 

The next time you walk around the neighborhood take note of gaps in the canopy, and how they affect your enjoyment.  Trees are our friends in many ways: they give us oxygen, shade and privacy; they provide homes for birds, squirrels, and other animals; they prevent water runoff onto streets, and they beautify our neighborhood. 

To preserve our canopy we need to plant new trees around the neighborhood - BHA is working with MSD to make this easy and inexpensive.  If you have room in your yard for one or more trees, please contact us, bonnycastlehomestead@gmail.com, NOW so you can get in on the fall tree planting. Trees are $25 each for BHA Members, and $50 for non-members.  A list of available trees is at the top of the website, under Tree Initiative.

We also need volunteers of all ages to help plant the trees!  You will get a tree planting lesson, then work in teams to place trees in pre-dug holes. Scout troops are welcome and we will document the community service hours performed.  If you're interested in learning more please contact us, bonnycastlehomestead@gmail.com, now to participate in fall plantings.
