WYNNEWOOD NORTH REFORESTATION
THE "75 FOR 75" project
Are you interested in revitalizing our surroundings, enhancing the beauty of our community, and creating a greener future for generations to come? If so, we are thrilled to reach out to you with an exciting opportunity that will help us make a significant difference in our neighborhood's ecosystem.
In honor of the 75th anniversary of our beloved Wynnewood, the WNNA is introducing “75 for 75” which will be a reforestation project to plant 75 trees throughout the neighborhood. By partnering with the City of Dallas’s reforestation program, we’ll be able to obtain the trees FREE of charge. Additionally, the WNNA has secured 60% of the funding for the planting of the initial year’s goal of 25 trees through Heritage Oak Cliff. The remaining funds will be obtained through fundraising efforts in the neighborhood.
The project is getting kicked off this fall, with our initial planting date expected for this coming winter! As this goal will be a huge effort to accomplish, we are reaching out to all of our neighbors to ask for your help in revitalizing and protecting our urban forest for the next 75 years.
How can i GET INVOLVED?
Adopt a Tree – Be one of the volunteers to adopt a tree to plant in the easement of their yard. The costs of both the tree and the planting will be covered, so volunteers will only be asked to commit to maintenance and watering care to help establish this tree for long-term success.
Volunteer Your Time – Don’t have the room for another tree? Giving us your time to help organize and support the planting of these trees will be just as impactful.
Donate to the Planting Fund – The WNNA will still need to fundraise to complete the task of getting these trees in the ground, so anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
Excited for more? Then send an email to James Tekippe at email@example.com and just indicate how you would like to get involved using one of the options above.
The project managers will then be in touch with next steps and more information.
