During the COVID-19 pandemic, Openlands community tree planting events will not convene volunteer groups to accomplish projects, as we do not want create an undue risk to the safety of our staff and our volunteers. Unfortunately, community planting days as traditionally done are canceled.
Following strict social distancing, sanitation and hygiene protocol, Openlands staff will plant the projects that residents worked hard to coordinate this year. The previously scheduled projects will be planted by the staff Arborists and the Forestry Trainee Crew this fall.
If you have a question about the status of your project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to be able to safely gather again to plant trees sometime in the future!
