Help us sustain young trees in Roslindale!
Volunteer to help improve the grounds around nine young trees we planted six years ago at the MBTA station. We need to:
    - Clear weeds and grass at the base of each tree
    - Put a trunk protector on each tree trunk to help protect the bark
    - Add mulch in a ring extending out to the drip line of the tree
    - For trees planted on a slope, build a berm on the downward slope side to minimize rainwater runoff
We’ll have mulch, trunk protectors, fill and topsoil. Please bring work gloves, hand tools or a shovel, sun protection and water to drink.
When: Sunday, June 17, 3 to 5 pm (rain date Sunday, June 24)
Where: Roslindale MBTA commuter rail station upper parking lot
