CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Over 100 trees will be planted across Cheyenne on Saturday as a local nonprofit is resuming an annual event.
Rooted in Cheyenne will be hosting its annual tree-planting event Saturday, pairing volunteers up with local tree and green industry professionals across the city in order to plant trees as part of the event’s 11th year of existence.
A City of Cheyenne news release Wednesday afternoon noted that Rooted in Cheyenne is still seeking volunteers to participate in the event’s afternoon shift from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lunch, a T-shirt and a free drink coupon to Freedom’s Edge Brewing Company will be provided.
The program allows local homeowners “with low-cost trees to be planted in or adjacent to the public right-of-way,” per the release, with trees costing $50 and each homeowner allowed two trees per planting season. Free trees to homeowners in low-tree-canopy neighborhoods will also be provided this weekend as funded by the Cheyenne Sustainability Program.
