Adopt a tree well…now!

This tree well could be yours....

This tree well could be yours....

The Cham­ber’s Deb­bie Pig­man tells me this is part of what makes our Town so beautiful:

Cham­ber of Com­merce Adopt a Tree Well Pro­gram Con­tin­ues in 2009. 

The Cham­ber of Com­merce Down­town Forum, as part of its beau­ti­fi­ca­tion plan, ini­ti­at­ed a pro­gram in 2008 where busi­ness­es, orga­ni­za­tions or indi­vid­u­als could “adopt” the ground around the trees along the side­walks in Fri­day Har­bor by plant­i­ng flow­ers and car­ing for them.

Eight of the tree wells along Spring Street were adopt­ed and pro­vid­ed beau­ti­ful green, red, white and blue col­or until the first heavy frost.
The pro­gram will con­tin­ue in 2009 with the goal of hav­ing twice as many tree wells adopt­ed, espe­cial­ly since it is the Town’s Cen­ten­ni­al year.

Adopters will pur­chase the plants from the Cham­ber and will be respon­si­ble for plant­i­ng, water­ing, weed­ing and keep­ing the area clean of lit­ter.  If you adopt­ed in 2008 and would like to con­tin­ue car­ing for your area, or, if you would like to adopt for the first time, con­tact Deb­bie Pig­man at  378‑5240 or chamber@sanjuanisland.org.
