Sponsor a tree- FALL TREE PLANTING 2014

RICHWOOD PLACE CIVIC ASSOCIATION (RPCA) is once again partnering with Trees for Houston to plant Live Oaks throughout our neighborhood. During the winter of 2012 we planted 7 30 gallon live oaks along Norfolk between Hazard and Woodhead. They are looking great!

If you would like to plant one or more live oaks in your front yard or sponsor a live oak planted elsewhere in Richwood Place, you can pay for that here or come to National Night Out and you can select the location there. We will have a map of the neighborhood showing where we would like to plant trees.

Your neighbor, Alexandra Hernández-Nørgaard is heading up this effort and can be reached for questions via email : ahn@aretelandscape.com

The cost of the tree including planting, staking and mulching is $95 ($99 online). You do not have to be a RPCA member to take advantage of this offer, however if you are a current member of the association, you can receive a $25 discount off of this already discounted price ($75 online).

Join us in the 1800 Block of Norfolk tomorrow night for National Night Out from 6-8pm. We will have a sample tree there for you to see. As well as a visit by the HFD and entertainment by Allen Oldies Band.

See you then!

It’s that time again…

Texas celebrates National Night Out in October again this year this coming Tuesday, October 1. And, Richwood Place is having a party in the 1800 block of Norfolk from 6-8pm.
