Tree planting day at the GBHS Museum grounds led by arborist Tom Ingersoll

with No Comments

On a cold Saturday in November, Certified Arborist Tom Ingersoll of Ingersoll Land Care donated his expertise and labor to conduct a workshop on the proper planting of bare root trees on the GBHS Museum grounds.

Our all-volunteer crew planted 6 trees on the property. Two were planted to beautify the north side of the farmhouse, while the others were installed along the sidewalk in front of the Museum building. The cost of all the trees was paid by a financial donation to the Society for the purpose of adding trees back to the property that was once called “The Elms” for its great number of trees back then.

The following day Gary Leveille and Paul Moulthrop volunteered to move the remains of stump grinding around to enhance the landscape and mulch the newly-planted trees.

We now have a wonderful addition to the Museum grounds, thanks to all our volunteers. Please stop by and see the results!
