May 2, 2015: OVFF Tree Planting Project: 1,200 Seedlings at Woodland Mound Park!

Help plant a forest with the OVFF! Since our first planting in 1979, we have planted over 120,000 seedlings in the Cincinnati area! Now our efforts are more important than ever. The Emerald Ash Borer continues to infect and kill Ash trees in the Southern Ohio area at an alarming rate. Hundreds of trees have been lost in Woodland Mound park alone! To help restore forest canopy, Sibcy Cline's Eastgate and Anderson offices and the Great Parks of Hamilton County are teaming with the OVFF to plant 1,200 seedlings at the Steamboat Bend Campground. Sibcy Cline is providing the trees as well as lunch for the volunteers. The Ohio Valley Forestry Fellowship will provide shovels and planting dibbles. Motor Vehicle permits will be waived. Pretty much any age can participate! 

So - bring a friend, join us for whatever time you can give, and help to replant a forest! Wear your "gardening" clothes, as you may get dirty. Boots and gloves are recommended but not required.

What:   Plant 1,200 seedlings to replace Ash trees lost to the Emerald Ash Borer

When:  Saturday May 2, 2015: 9am–4pm 

Where: Woodland Mound Park at Steamboat Bend Campground Picnic Shelter, US Rt.52 at 9 Mile Rd.

Hello All,

Taking Root is looking for help with the following projects:

The school will be receiving a fresh coat of paint, new mascot murals and more courtesy of volunteers from CSX. Taking Root is planning and managing the tree planting part of this gigantic project and we need your help! We will work from 8:30 am until 11:00 am to clear planting beds and plant roughly 30 trees! You will need to register for the project at the following link: https://www.beyondourrails.org/rsvp/cincinnati  you will receive a free lunch and a T-shirt! Drop me a line as well and let me know you signed up so I know how much help to expect. we need 20-30 volunteers to assist us in order to get all of beds prepped and the trees planted. Think of it like extreme home makeover, only with trees!

 

Additionally if anyone is interested in contact nurseries and landscaper to update our mailing list I could use your help. We are planning a council meeting in November and I need to make sure our list is up to date so I can be sure to invite everyone.

October 24, 2015: OVFF helps Sibcy Cline with a fall tree planting project!

Hello, Fellow Tree Planters!

I am excited to inform you that there will be a fall tree planting. We are donating 10+ larger trees at Shor Park of Clermont County Parks and they will get additional trees.

 

Please, join us for a different tree planting experience on Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 9:00am-1:00pm. Clermont County Parks will schedule a small digger for the larger holes and well finish out the holes by hand. Many folks will cooperate to place larger trees with root balls in the holes and fill in around.

 

Well have a picnic and beverages for all volunteers & guests. We look forward to your group joining us again this year. Please, let me know if and how many volunteers in your group so we can have lunch for everyone. Thank you so much.

 

Cheers,

Lori
