Trees Across Raleigh is conducting a new planting this weekend: Saturday October 23rd on Clarke Avenue between Horne and Brook.

Here is the link to volunteer.

Trees Across Raleigh, as the subtext of my sidebar link proclaims, has planted over 8,000 trees in Raleigh so far.  Please support them.

Someday, when my health and work allow me to catch up this blog, I will have a page of record trees, many of which are on Raleigh roadsides.  Have you ever noticed the monstrous sycamore in front of Pullen Lake on Western Boulevard?  Or the gigantic box elder (for a box elder) on East Martin Street, or the large stand of magnficent magnolias at the very bottom of St. Mary’s Street?  I will show them to you eventually, plus tell you about the slow demise of a state record water oak in Kiwanis Park.  Just give me time!
