SATURDAY APRIL 26
The bumper sticker “If you’re breathing, thank a tree” says it all!
On Arbor Day, April 25, the world officially recognizes the importance of trees for their miracle of photosynthesis as well as for the beauty and shelter they provide.
During Arbor Day weekend, arborists throughout Massachusetts will be participating in MAA Day of Service events.
Natascha Batchelor of The Davey Tree Expert Co. in Falmouth is organizing a Day of Service for Saturday April 26 at Meetinghouse Farm. Participating arborists will be pruning and removing trees to improve the safety and health of trees around the Farm. The Farm’s trees are a unique community resource and we appreciate the participation of local arborists in this statewide event.

STANLEY SMITH HORTICULTURAL TRUST
A survey of the Farm’s trees is underway as part of the $10,000 grant received from the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust. This grant also provides funds to add new ornamentals, create a brochure showcasing the Farm’s trees and offer more tree-related programs.
Five days of field trips for Barnstable’s 4th graders, are planned for June. TREE BLITZ is an annual educational event in collaboration with AmeriCorps Cape Cod. Students explore tree-related topics at a series of teaching stations and collect and analyze data on the Farm’s most unique trees.
