Schnitzelburg Tree Planting - Sign Up Today!

Greetings Schnitzelburg Tree enthusiasts!

The Schnitzelburg Area Community Council and Love Louisville Trees/Louisville Grows is partnering to plant 170 new trees in Schnitzelburg this fall. 

Not only are trees aesthetically appealing, but they keep us cool (and block wind in the cooler months), stabilize the soil, absorb water runoff, help control noise pollution, and clean our air! Trees can also increase your property value!

Volunteers are vital to making this event happen, so we encourage you to get involved. You may not be available on November 11th, but there are plenty of other ways to get involved, such as signing up to go door-to-door or volunteering for tree staging before the event.

Wondering how it's all done? After breakfast, volunteers are sorted into groups. Each group does an initial planting together at a site to learn the proper way to plant before they are broken into smaller groups. Each small group is lead by a Citizen Forrester, an individual who is a veteran tree planter and has completed training to become tree steward. Groups are typically given trees in close proximity to each other so you can walk from site to site.  Trees will already be delivered to the site and a spray painted circle identifies where the tree will go (811 is called before the planting to mark the underground utilities). Once the group is finished planting (~5 trees per group) they go back to the staging site to have a warm lunch!

For  more information please check out the links below so that we know when to expect you and for what!  It's all fun and training is provided!

  1. Stump Grinding Company website was very knowledgeable about our trees and he and his father really did an awesome job trimming them and clearing out our unwanted bushes. Often tree trimmers do hack jobs on trees, but they did a great job trimming our trees back while keeping their shape and making them look natural.
