TLC for Trees attracts more than 25 volunteers

More than 100 young live oak trees received some “TLC” (tender loving care) during the city’s first ever “Tree L. C.” event on Feb. 19.

Volunteers from local high schools, the Mayors Youth Advisory Council and Serve Sugar Land spent the day at Lost Creek Park clearing vegetation, pruning and mulching around the young trees.

Volunteers planted the live oak trees in 2009 during Trees Across Sugar Land. The oaks were donated by Keep Sugar Land Beautiful through a Half Price Books/Keep Texas Beautiful Replant Texas Grant. They were planted among existing natural creek vegetation along the trail near Oyster Creek to supplement the tree canopy along the creek and replace trees as a result of Hurricane Ike.

Pruning competing vegetation away from the trees and adding mulch at their bases will help prepare the trees for spring. Additional “Tree L. C.” projects will take place throughout the year at several City parks.

For more information on volunteering for Serve Sugar Land, visit www.sugarlandtx.gov or call the Volunteer Program Office at (281) 275-2329.
