N. Main Tree Planting Opportunity

We apologize for the late notice; however, we only found out about this yesterday. But there is still time to register! AND we can do another event in the fall.

North Main neighborhood is participating in a community tree planting sponsored by the nonprofit TreesGreenville. They are offering discounted trees to residents to plant on private property AND they will organize a volunteer day to plant all the trees for us. The cost per tree is $35. We need a minimum of 12 residents to participate and to register for a minimum of 17 trees to qualify for the program. Please help us spread the word!
