Many Hands Make Healthy Trees

A big thank you to all the volunteers who came out to today's tree care event at Safe Shores! 12 volunteers from Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenwood, South Carolina linked with Steinbruck Center and Casey Trees to help water 35 young trees. The trees were planted during a Community Tree Planting event in October. After watering and weeding this morning, volunteers toured the facility at Safe Shores and were joined by our Water By-Cycle crew. We appreciate all your help in making sure the young trees receive the necessary 25 to Stay Alive to stay hydrated in the summer heat!

Also thank you to the Living City Block DC volunteers who helped us water trees at Met Branch Trail on Saturday. 9 volunteers joined Casey Trees to water the 65 young trees and weed a section of the pathway.

If you or your organization are interested in participating in a tree care event, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Carol Herwig at And don't forget - trees need 25 gallons of water per week to stay healthy. Make the pledge to water your trees and receive a free rain gauge!
