Tree Planting – Workday

The Tree planting workday on 2/22/14 went very well. We had a bunch of help and things went pretty smoothly. All the new trees are planted, we were also able to remove some of the older big trees that were starting to become an issue. Work was done for all the new irrigation, the Bessemer engine had some work done, and the roof of the Ice Cream house got some work and a new coat of paint.

Thanks to everyone that came out and pitched a hand.

Below is a link to the workday gallery and a couple of videos. If you have any photos or video you’d like to add, please send them to tedtea.web@gmail.com

We are still taking donations to cover the cost of the trees. To make a donation please fill out and mail the Tree Donation Form (PDF reader needed) or for more information on this or other projects, please contact us at:

Tree Planting Event

Location: TEDTEA Show Grounds
Start Time: 8am
Date: 02-22-2014
Description: Some club members have offered to donate time and materials to plant and irrigate 25 – 3″ live oak trees, approx 8′ tall – around the show grounds where we have lost shade due to the drought the last few years. The only cost to the club will be the purchase of the trees themselves at $60 per tree.

Locations for the planting have already been determined and the club is offering a unique opportunity for members and friends of the club to help with the cost of the project by making an individual tree donation of $60 or more. (As of Feb. 7, there are still 19 trees available).

Any donations to the project are always welcome, but recognition of the individual tree donations will be commemorated by a single plaque with the names off all individual tree donations to be placed in a high traffic area. Opportunity for donations will remain until the cost of all the trees has been covered, so if you are unable to raise the money by the 22nd, but would like to participate, don’t worry, the opportunity remains.

To make a donation please fill out and mail the Tree Donation Form (PDF reader needed) or for more information, please contact us at: tedtea.web@gmail.com
