CHEYENNE – Rooted in Cheyenne will conduct its fourth neighborhood tree planting event Saturday.
Cheyenne Urban Forestry Division, local arborists, landscapers and volunteers from across the community will be planting 110 trees along Cheyenne’s streets.
Motorists are asked to slow down and be cautious of crews planting trees in the right-of-way.
Following the event, an after-planting party will be held from 6-8 p.m. at Danielmark’s Brewery, 209 E. 18th Street. A tree auction and other activities and raffles are planned.
Rooted in Cheyenne is a neighborhood tree planting program dedicated to planting trees along Cheyenne’s streets and partnering with homeowners, businesses and non-profits to support a more diverse and resilient forest canopy and cultivate greener, healthier, more livable neighborhoods.
This year’s major sponsors are Wyoming State Forestry Division, Historic Cheyenne Inc. and Holly Frontier.
The program provides homeowners with low cost trees to be planted in or adjacent to the public right-of-way. Tree planting, watering, and care for one-year is included with every tree purchased.
Trees cost $50, and homeowners are allowed two trees per planting season. More information and applications for next fall’s planting are available online at rootedincheyenne.com.
