WV Project CommuniTree

“Building Communities from the Roots Up”

CTree Projects - Spring 2014

The Gallery HOA

Spring 2014


The Gallery HOA in Martinsburg, WV planted 50 trees in a 9 acre parcel that borders the playground and recreation center that will allow shade and enjoyment for years to come. The 50 trees were a mix of native shade trees, flowering trees, and evergreen White Pines. The WV Project CommuniTree Liaison, Urban Forester Liz Basham, led the group in a demonstration of how to plant trees.

For this project, The Gallery HOA board was able to attract almost 80 volunteers to show up for the event. These volunteers ranged from a local Girl Scouts troop to elderly residents who reside in the community. The weather was perfect and we were able to get all 50 trees planted, staked and mulched within a couple hours.

A note from the Project Leader, Zack Walker:

“The greatest enjoyment was seeing the community come together as a group and work to get the trees into the ground. Fun was had by all that were present.”
