Despite challenging weather conditions, dozens of volunteers arrived at the UVM Horticultural Farm in South Burlington on Saturday, May 6 to plant 170 trees and “Green Up” the Community Tree Nursery. On the same day, homeowners from all over Chittenden County picked up over 330 trees to plant on their properties. Both events were sponsored by Branch Out Burlington. South Burlington resident Kyle Albee, Branch Out Burlington vice-president, said the organization has donated trees to many local nonprofits, including Orchard Elementary School as part of the group’s practice of charitable giving of trees.
