NE Lions Join Effort to Plant a Million Trees
The President of Lions Clubs International has challenged clubs around the world to plant one million trees in the next year:
An important part of our extension of service this year is caring for our environment. Our goal this year is to plant a million trees around the world. That’s less than one tree for each member. If we can accomplish this goal, it proves once again that we can accomplish anything
Any of us can plant a tree. It’s a very visible and hands-on way for each and every Lion to make a difference. It’s also a great project to invite your community at-large to join your local Lions club in a collaborative effort.
The Northeast Lions are making our first step to meeting the challenge by giving away a batch of 2-foot spruce trees. The University of Minnesota offers a guide to choosing landscape evergreens, showing that spruce trees like full sun and acidic soil.
If you would like a free spruce tree, email our club’s “Woodsman”, Chad Carr, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
