WV Project CommuniTree

“Building Communities from the Roots Up”

CTree Projects - Spring 2014

Riverside Design LLC & the Western Maryland Chamber of Commerce

Spring 2014


Riverside Design LLC and the Western Maryland Chamber of Commerce planted 24 flowering trees with students at Frankfort High School in Mineral County. Although slightly cloudy on the day of the planting, the temperature was just right for the 30 student volunteers that ranged from 8th and the 4 adults, that worked on this project. In addition to planting the 24 flowering trees, they also mulched all of the landscaping around the building. Over 12 yards of mulch was used for this project to help the trees and existing vegetation foster good root growth and hold in moisture. This project was an extension of a fall 2014 WV Project CommuniTree planting, bringing the total to 48 flowering trees planted at Frankfort High School.

A word from the Project Leader, Riverside Design LLC owner Ed Shifflett: “It is great working with the students to see them so enthusiastic about an event like this. The educational value of an event like this is truly priceless.”
