Here at SmartTrips Business we love a good tree planting to help clean the air, add value to local neighborhoods, and reduce our stormwater management problems.
The good folks at Friends of Trees have already planted 54,000 trees this planting season. That's right: not since their inception or this century - 54,000 trees this planting season.
Like the fabled peanut butter chocolate bar, neighbors have merged the salubrious act of neighborhood tree plantings with the wondrous joy of bicycling.
This Saturday, the Sunnyside, Kerns, and Laurelhurst and North Tabor neighborhoods will have three bike crews that will be moving and planting trees, along with heavy tools, all by bike!
This is the third and largest Friends of Trees bicycle tree planting. You don't need a bike to participate, however.
To join in the fun, meet at the Sunnyside United Methodist Church, 3520 SE Yamhill
this Saturday at 8:30 a.m. For more information, contact Peter Nierengarten at (503) 367-4444.
