Arbor Day Block Party

April 27 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

Trees are a critical piece of our community infrastructure: trees improve public health and safety, add economic value to residential properties and businesses, meet environmental challenge, and improve our natural world and its inhabitants. The Cleveland Tree Coalition is a collaborative group of public, private and community stakeholders that have partnered with the City of Cleveland to rebuild our urban forest and achieve reforestation goals outlined in the Cleveland Tree Plan.

Reforesting Slavic Village partners have come together to improve the neighborhood’s tree canopy and support this larger effort. Members include: Americorps, ArcelorMittal, Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland, Councilman Anthony Brancatelli, Broadway P-16, City of Cleveland Office of Sustainability, City Year, Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Cleveland Central Catholic, Cleveland Metroparks, Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, Cuyahoga Community College, Holden Forests and Gardens, Slavic Village Development, Third Federal Foundation, Western Reserve Land Conservancy, Bartlett Tree Service, Davey Tree and Youth Opportunities Unlimited.

Community members are invited to help plant trees at an exciting Arbor Day Block Party on Saturday, April 27 from 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Fullerton School (3900 East 75th Street Cleveland, OH 44105).

This year Reforesting Slavic Village is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation to offer FREE TREES to residents in Slavic Village through the Cleveland Community Canopy program. Residents of 44105 and 44127 zip codes can receive a tree to plant in their yard at no cost through this website: www.arborday.org/cleveland.  You can also call (216) 515-8300 to receive a tree.  Trees will be distributed at Fullerton School on Saturday, April 27th during the Arbor Day event.

Together, we can Reforest Slavic Village and help make Cleveland the Forest City once again!
