Indian Trail Tree Education Initiative returns for 8th year

Kids help plant a tree in the snow

The Indian Trail Tree Education Initiative is now under way, as the Indian Trail Parks and Recreation Department heads out to elementary schools across town to talk about the importance of trees in our community.

This is the eighth year for the program, which works with local fourth-graders to educate them about the role trees play in making Indian Trail a better place. Students learn about the different types of trees in our area, the many ways they benefit the community, and what families can do to protect our tree canopy. The Town is working with nearly 1,000 kids in nine local schools this year.

“It’s really special for us to be able to work with our bright young students and know that our program is helping protect Indian Trail’s future,” Indian Trail Special Events Coordinator Hayden Kramer said. “We love all the photos we receive from kids showing off their planted tree at home, and the kids love knowing that they are doing something to make our community better.”

Each student in the program receives a small loblolly pine tree to take home and plant, and two larger trees are planted at every school. More than 100 trees have been planted at Indian Trail schools through the program, and more than 5,500 trees have been given to students to plant at home.

Indian Trail Parks and Recreation Department members will be visiting local schools throughout April.
