Environmental Club’s Tree-Plenish event returns

Environmental Club is once again hosting its Tree-Plenish event in order to better protect the environment.

Del Val’s Environmental Club has recently launched this year’s Tree-Plenish fundraiser. Community members can purchase saplings now through March 26 on Del Val’s Tree-Plenish page. 

This program’s goal is to offset the school’s energy consumption by 50%, which would be equivalent to 528 tons of carbon. To do this, 440 saplings need to be sold.

“With the state of our environment right now, it’s important to take some accountability and do our part in limiting carbon emissions,” said Environmental Club president Jamie Markowski.

Del Val is offering three types of trees, which are available to anyone for five dollars each: American Sycamore, Red Maple and Sweet Birch. The saplings will begin to bloom four-to-six weeks after they’re planted.

With the state of our environment right now, it’s important to take some accountability and do our part in limiting carbon emissions.”

— Jaime Markowski

Once purchased, sapling pick up will be held on April 26. Buyers will then have to plant the trees themselves. Care information is available on the resource page.

If you don’t have the ability to plant or care for a tree, the option for you to donate or sponsor this event is available and always appreciated.

The goal is to unite and educate the community. There is hope that this event will lead to a brighter future when it comes to the choices this community makes and its impact on the environment.

Spread the word because every bit of effort to the cause will have a better impact on the world.
