On Veteran’s Day, 18 volunteers from the Rotary Club of North Fulton (7 Rotarians and 11 family and friends) gathered to plant 16 trees in honor of Rotary International President Ian Risely. The Club's newest Rotarian, Tom
Salata, worked with the City of Alpharetta Urban Forestry
Program Manager Will Eberly to:
the appropriate city park (we choose North Park which is home to the
Rotary Reflection Garden which our club developed and dedicated in 2013)
the appropriate trees (both under story – dogwood and redbud and shade –
oak and tulip)
the placement of the trees
the preferred local nursery to purchase the trees (SiteOne Landscape
Supply in Alpharetta).
This project was made more manageable with the aid of past
president Richard Matherly when he enlisted the support of O’Neill Landscape
Group who volunteered to dig the holes and place the trees.
This request to plant trees
has focused our club on adding more trees in the coming years to the Reflection
