Several volunteers gathered at Cottonwood Park recently to replace trees after severe damaged or destroyed many of them.
The event was part of Richardson Replants, an initiative that offers residents the chance to replace trees lost on City land due to the June 9 and Oct 21 storms.
Local engineering firm, Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam, Inc., in partnership with the City and the Texas Trees Foundation provided 25 trees and coordinated the tree planting event at Cottonwood Park where approximately 30% of the total trees lost at the park in June.
“People who come together for a common cause, can rally make a difference,” said Matt Grubisich, director of operations at Texas Trees Foundation.
Anyone may provide funding for trees for Richardson Replants.
The City is currently exploring similar programming alternatives to help replant trees that were lost on private property.
