Little Rock Urban Forestry to Host ENACT Workshop
(Little Rock, AR—August 21, 2006) The E.N.A.C.T. (Enhancing Neighborhood and Community Trees) planting program this year will include trees grown at the city’s Urban Tree Farm. These two year old, containerized trees include large native and low growing ornamental varieties for planting adjacent to power lines.
The E.N.A.C.T. program provides trees or funds to neighborhood and community groups to plants trees along city streets and public parks. “It’s a great program to encourage neighbors to get out and work together to beautify their part of Little Rock,” says Peter Rausch, Urban Forester. During lasts year’s planting season, these neighborhood groups planted nearly 600 trees in the city and that really helps make a difference, Rausch states.
The Urban Forestry Division of Little Rock Parks and Recreation will be sponsoring a workshop for registered Neighborhood and Property Owner’s Associations, and registered non-profit community organizations. This workshop will be to review tree planting plans, planting guidelines, application procedures and provide an overview of the 2004 – 2005 E.N.A.C.T. Tree Planting Award Program.
Where: Hinton Neighborhood Resource Center, 12th and Pine St., Room 105
When: Saturday, August 26, 2006, 9:00 a.m. to noon
Space is limited, RSVP to Peter Rausch @ 374.8733 with attendee name or if you have any questions.
