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!

Trees Available From City of Houston

Just got this email from Mark Johnson @ Neartown: The City of Houston Urban Forestry Department has gifted Neartown residents with (50) 15-gallon hardwood trees in the following species: Shumard red oak, Texas Green Ash, Retama (Jerusaleum Thorn), Evergreen elm, Mountain Laurel, Redbud, Red Maple and Mexican plum.

The trees must be planted on the City right-of-way (or other City property such as a park or school) and the new owner will sign a form agreeing to water and feed the tree(s) for a minimum of two years.

These trees are HUGE! A truck is required for transport – and I do not have a truck. For more information or to set up a time to view the trees, contact Kathy Schipper at kathleencanty@sbcglobal.net. Hurry and make a decision as these beauties will go fast!
