2010 Community Elm Tree Planting Program

Continuing the efforts begun in 2009, HLTP is continuing to plant and maintain disease resistant elm trees this year. With an award from both the Buckland and Shelburne Local Cultural Councils, the Project will plant a tree in a public way in each community.

Join us on Arbor Day, Friday April 30, 2010 at 3:00 PM at the corner of Cross St. and Upper St. in Buckland Center to help the “Tree Raisers” middle school tree planting squad install the newest tree!

For details on obtaining your own Liberty Elm, refer to last year’s post “2009 Community Elm Tree Planting Program” under CAMPAIGNS on the right navigation bar.  Details and prices are the same in 2010 as in 2009.

In 2009 HLTP is offering to plant six foot Dutch Elm Disease resistant Liberty Elm street trees in area towns.  To guarantee the success of these majestic trees, we provide you with the following services:

  • Students from Mohawk Trail Middle School, supervised by their teacher, will dig a hole, test the soil for significant macro-nutrients and pH, add necessary organic fertilizers and limestone, and plant your elm tree. 
  • An OozeTube irrigation bladder will be installed around your tree in order to adequately water and train your new tree for the first growing season.
  • Data will be taken, such as height, address and GPS coordinates location, and be filed with the Liberty Elm Tree Institute. 
  • Your tree will come with a lifetime warranty against Dutch Elm Disease, and two years of monitoring.
  • You will receive a certificate of dedication to keep or gift, which announces the tree’s location and person or organization for whom the tree was planted.

 Price: $200
