June 17 update: Six orphans remaining
Even with two more little Sakura cherry trees added to our roster (the pair in behind the new bench north of the north-est baseball diamond) -- we've just seven more "orphan" saplings seeking neighborhood adopters.
They need 5-gallons (20 litres) of water every week over the summer until just before Thanksgiving and we've several water sources, buggies and jugs around the park.
If you're interested please contact the Adopt A Tree coordinator, Michaelle using our Contact Form and select "adoptatree."
Watering now for the park's future canopy. oh yeah.
And speaking of the park's tree canopy, this is one of the LIttle Leaf Lindens (Tilia cordata) in the south end of the park. You can find more about this tree -- which has wonderfully fragrant blooms in early summer -- at Wikipedia.
