Arbor Day Tree Planting at Sadsbury Woods Preserve

Saturday, April 30 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Did you know that over a 50-year lifetime a tree generates $31,250 worth of oxygen, provides $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycles $37,500 worth of water, and controls $31,350 worth of soil erosion?

With your help, we’ll plant 1,400 trees at our Sadsbury Woods Preserve at this event, so it’s easy to calculate the long-term impact of our efforts! (To save you the math, that’s almost $227 million.)

Join us for a the whole morning, or for just a few hours. Children and groups of any size are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.

Please wear boots or shoes that can get muddy, and bring work gloves and a
shovel, if possible. We’ll be digging holes, planting seedlings, and placing
protective tree tubes around the trees.

This event made possible through partnership with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, TreeVitalize, PA Department of Environmental Protection, and Chester County Conservation District, and Natural Lands Trust.

Pre-registration is required. Please email Mandy Santiago or call her at 610-353-5587 ext. 266.
