Spring is here and that means it is time for Reforest the Bluegrass, Lexington’s annual tree planting event. This year’s in-person volunteer tree planting will be held on Saturday, April 9, at Belleau Woods Park. The Reforest at Home event will be held a week later on Saturday, April 16.
Pre-registration is required to participate in Reforest the Bluegrass at Belleau Woods Park on April 9 due to the small size of the site and limited parking. Volunteers will register for an hour block of time to plant trees and will receive a t-shirt and snacks for participating. We are excited to have an in-person planting this year and encourage participants to register early to reserve a spot.
Reforest at Home will take place on Saturday, April 16. Fayette County residents can select up to three free trees to plant at home. Residents are strongly encouraged to reserve their trees in advance and may choose specific species along with the pickup site, Castlewood, Jacobson, Masterson or Shillito. Pre-registration is limited to three trees per household. Trees not claimed through pre-registration will be available at the sites on a first-come, first-served basis. The limit on number of trees available on-site will depend on the number not claimed through pre-registration.
Pre-register for both events and find out more information at lexingtonky.gov/Reforest.
