Loveland, Ohio -Last fall Loveland’s Tree Planting Alliance (Tree Corps) held its first successful sale and volunteer tree planting event as part of Make a Difference Day. Eighty trees were sold to home and business owners. Volunteers planted 20 trees in public spaces, mostly in front of the Loveland Primary and Elementary schools, along Loveland Madeira Road. The City of Loveland participated by buying trees for the new Cox Parking Lot. Afterwards, Loveland City Manager Dave Kennedy said, “This was a great event. We are adding [trees] in some good locations.”
The tree sale this past spring went well also.
In an effort to continue the momentum, the Loveland Tree Corps is again offering a Fall sale of attractive, hardwood, shade trees, all of which grow well in southwest Ohio. At maturity, these trees will provide that wonderfully high canopy that adds so much character to our community.
The available trees are listed on the order form, including two that are appropriate for sites with overhead wires. Download the Tree Corps Order Form Fall 2017
The Loveland Tree Corps was founded by Loveland Magazine and Loveland resident, Cindy Kessler because currently more trees are being removed than are being planted. In an effort to reverse this trend, the Tree Corps is providing reasonably priced trees and encouraging people to plant them anywhere and everywhere: at home, church, place of business, local parks/schools/etc (with permission, of course). Plant to shade pavement from the summer sun, to shade your house and reduce your summer AC bill, to improve neighborhood property values, for a friend to make them smile, for environmental reasons, or simply for the sheer beauty that trees provide. Whatever your reason, let’s all make our community a little greener one season at a time.
Pickup will be October 6 between 8 AM until 2 PM at Loveland Magazine, 514 W. Loveland Avenue, Loveland, Ohio, 45140 (next to Union Savings Bank, look for signs). Orders must be received before Sept. 22.
Biological diversity helps prevent widespread loss of trees if a pest or disease hits your area, as we are currently experiencing with the Emerald Ash Borer. For this reason, the tree offerings include some trees that may be new to you. Though lesser known, they are beautiful shade trees that do great in our area. If you are going to buy more than one, be sure to choose a variety of species.
The trees are in manageable 3-gallon containers and cost $25 each.
