Celebrate Trees in Maitland
To commemorate Earth Day and to acknowledge the contributions made by senior citizens, Celebrate Trees in Maitland planted a live oak tree in Quinn Strong Park, which is adjacent to the Senior Center. The ceremonial planting was done during the group's Earth Day Celebration and Tree Sale and was made possible by the generosity of business sponsors.

Maitland residents had to provide more than money to purchase the wholesale priced trees. A sketch of the homeowner's front yard, depicting overhead and underground utilities, sidewalks, existing large trees, and the proposed planting sites was required. Celebrate Trees is dedicated to ensuring that the right tree is planted in the right place and in the right way. The proposed plan was reviewed and approved by a tree expert before the sale was finalized. Free advice on which tree to select, how to care for the tree, and how to prepare mature trees for the upcoming hurricane season was also available.

Many new trees were delivered and planted on Saturday, April 30th. The group continues its on-going sales, striving to reach its goal of planting over 300 trees this season.

If you have further questions about this event, contact Beverly Reponen at 407-628-1461.
