Arbor Day 2020

Dear Members,

Last year’s Arbor Day event at Boys Scout Camp in Baiting Hollow was a fantastic success. The teamwork and camaraderie exhibited that day is commendable. Everything they requested was completed and they were very pleased with the work that was performed and grateful for our contribution. Great Job by everyone!

For our 2020 Arbor Day event, the LIAA will be at Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay on March 28th, 2020.  Our focus will be on safety pruning, structural pruning and hand pruning, as well as some tree removals.

We request that all volunteers arrive by 7:00AM for sign in and coffee and breakfast. We will have a short safety meeting (ISA & CTSP credits pending) prior to starting work at 8:00AM. Our goal is to be finished with all tasks by 12:30pm, and then we will have lunch.

In order to help make Arbor Day run as smoothly as possible, we need to know the people and equipment that our members will volunteer in advance of the event. Please take the time to complete the attached Registration Form. Please return our registration form no later than March 21st, 2020.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call David Golon at the number below. We will also be calling volunteers as we get closer to March 21st to discuss some of the particulars. As always, we anticipate great press coverage for LIAA, the membership, and Planting Fields. All volunteers will receive a commemorative shirt, continental breakfast, and lunch. So sharpen your saws, check your ropes, and make sure you’ve got all your PPE.  Let’s get ready for Arbor Day 2020!

You’re Arbor Day Committee Chairperson
