Tree Planting Project
Over the past two weeks, a total of 26 trees, bushes, and other plants have been added to seven of our housing sites in an ongoing process of beautification. Carrie, Housing Cambridge’s Administrative Coordinator, and Raffi, our Maintenance Administration co-op student, began this project by surveying each site to determine where additional trees were most needed. The pair then went to a local garden center to determine which available trees would most effectively meet our needs. After confirming the absence of utility locates, the trees were planted (see pictures below).
The value of this project extends far beyond aesthetics. When members of a community can feel proud of their neighborhood, they are often more willing put time and effort into maintaining it. We want Housing Cambridge residents to be proud community members.
