WV Project CommuniTree

“Building Communities from the Roots Up”

CTree Projects - Spring 2014

Orchard View Intermediate School



Orchard View Intermediate School planted 24 shade trees throughout their campus in Martinsburg, WV on May 19th, 2014. Over the course of the day, 600 4th and 5th grade students rotated out during their recess to help plant the trees. The students were assisted by CTree Liaison Molly Barkman, as well as by additional Cacapon Institute Staff, WV Division of Forestry personnel, and WV Division of Forestry personnel. The trees are a welcome and beautiful addition to the school and the students all loved planting them. They have adopted them as their homeroom trees and even given them names!

A note from Project Leader, teacher Robin Kent:

“All went very smoothly, once the weather cooperated! Communication was always clear and in a timely manner. Materials were easily assessable and the help in placing and planting was extremely helpful and appreciated.”
