  • Davey Consulting Urban Forester Facilitates Fall River, Mass., Tree Farm

    A tree farm occupying the space where a vacant city lot once existed in Fall River, Mass., turns heads as local residents walk by.

    Within the ¾-acre lot stands nearly 320 trees waiting for their final transplant to streetscapes, parks and schools as they develop into mature, healthy specimens. Thanks to the helping hands of many local, young volunteers, the trees have the opportunity to help improve the community.

    Approximately 20 children from YouthBuild, an organization comprising low-income individuals, ages 16 to 24, who work toward their GEDs or high school diplomas while building affordable housing, are involved with tree care responsibilities at the Fall River Tree Farm. They helped build the farm, dig holes for planting and spread mulch within the raised beds.

  • For the Benefit of Planting Trees

    Regrowth, rebirth and renewal: Yes, spring is finally here. I see pockets of fresh, green grass expanding across my lawn. I smell lingering raindrops in the air. And I hear bees buzz, beetles click and birds chirp in my landscape.

    My patio, now swept clean of winter's debris, provides me with the perfect view of my backyard. There, I settle into my favorite reclining lawn chair in a deep state of meditation, staring into the depths of the forest at the edge of the lot.

    My focus shifts to the giant, seemingly ancient oak tree that stands tall slightly to the left of the area where a childhood jungle gym once stood. I imagine the tire swing that once swayed gently in the breeze from its largest branch, as well as the excitement I felt each spring when I could freely play outside and enjoy the fresh air until dusk.

  • Planting Memories

    More than 10 years after the events of 9/11, the Flight 93 National Memorial remains the only 9/11 site that is unfunded and incomplete.

    This weekend, Davey helped the park get one step closer to completion.

    To kick off National Park Week, 24 Davey volunteers traveled to the memorial to aid with a planned 150,000-tree reforestation effort, part of the overall landscape design of the Flight 93 National Memorial. This weekend focused on nearly 15,000 of these seedlings - a mixture of a dozen native conifer and deciduous species - that will form a windbreak to protect other trees planted near memorial groves.
