Last week the lovely librarians from Kenilworth Library agreed to lend us a table from which we could advertise the StreetTree Program. We met there with our volunteers last week Monday at 10am, and there were people lined up to get into the library well before the doors actually opened. We chose a good time, because for the few hours we were there people were constantly coming in to drop off books, take out movies, use the computers, or just sit down and read. We spoke to over 30 people and gathered a few extra requests!

We found that some trees fill out much faster than others (maybe with some careful watering and protection):
and some people were in the middle of landscaping around their new tree:
Overall though, all the trees were beautiful and there were plenty of new ones around the Keith area! I'm excited to see what they'll look like in a few years!
