The Prospect Heights Street Tree Task Force has accepted the invitation of the Vanderbilt Avenue Merchants Association to work with the merchants to enhance the health, vitality and beauty of Vanderbilt Avenue street trees.
The Street Tree Task Force is a local volunteer organization committed to the care and maintenance of all our neighborhood’s street trees.
Volunteers will aerate, fertilize and mulch the tree pits and prune tree branches on Vanderbilt Avenue. In return, the Task Force only requests merchants to keep tree pits free of garbage and to water the trees on a regular basis.
Organizers would love to have as many Prospect Heights residents who can join them on June 25th to help with the tree care event. They will need the extra help  to cover Vanderbilt Avenue from Plaza Street to Pacific Street. If you have gloves or cultivators bring them along. Organizers will do their best to ensure that everyone has the tools needed to do the job. Please join in!
