WV Project CommuniTree

“Building Communities from the Roots Up”

CTree Projects - Spring 2014

North Fork Elementary School



North Fork Elementary School in Pendleton County, WV received a Shade-16 kit to plant 16 shade trees throughout their campus. The tree planting took place on April 28th, 2014 at around 7:30am. A volunteer, who is also one of the bus drivers, augured the holes for the project. The students started coming out around 8:15 and they helped carry the trees, mulch, stakes, and tubes to each planting hole, as well as plant a couple trees. Throughout the day, 110 students were able to volunteer and participate in this project! All of the students enjoyed their day outside learning how to properly plant trees.

A note from the Project Leader, Principal John Jenkins:

“The planting event was very educational and fun for the students. They seemed to be very interested and involved in the project. The materials and everything that WV Project CommuniTree provided were excellent, and the help from the WVCA was very much appreciated.”
