West Lafayette Tree Friends looking for help on Arbor Day

West Lafayette Tree Friends are looking for a few extra hands to help plant trees Friday morning.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The West Lafayette Tree Friends organization needs your help Friday morning for their annual Arbor Day event.

This year, the group will be meeting close to the Northwestern Avenue and Lindberg Road intersection. The planting will take place across the street from the Northwestern Heights neighborhood at 10 a.m.

One group coming out to help this year are kids from Burgett's Learning Center.

"We don't plant trees just because it looks nice," said Neighborhood Vitality Bryce Patz. "We do it for storm retention for the environment. So, it's a great teaching tool for young kids to see why we do it and then as they grow they can watch the trees that they helped plant grow."

With your help, West Lafayette Tree Friends  will plant around eight trees. They also plant tribute trees, "which is a program through West Lafayette Tree friends," Patz said. "If you want to honor somebody important in your life you can donate money for a tribute tree and that way we put a little plaque on there so you can watch your tree grow as well."

All the tools for the tree plantings will be provided for you once you arrive.
