Local Organizations Root Collaboration with a Tree Planting | Environment
Brunet-García Advertising and their 2012 re:solve℠ grant recipients participated in a tree-planting event hosted by Greenscape of Jacksonville in Boone Park on Saturday, March 3. Fifty-nine trees were added to the Riverside park landscape.
The tree planting was a kick-off for the partnerships created by Brunet-García’s re:solve℠ grant program. Organizations receiving service grants from the advertising agency include Wounded Warrior Project, RAP and Greenscape.
The location of Boone Park was determined by one of the grant recipients, Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP). The trees were provided by JEA through the “Green Releaf” partnership between Greenscape of Jacksonville and JEA.
Patrons of Boone Park will now be able to enjoy a variety of new trees, including crape myrtle, redbud, fringe, cypress, dogwood and riverbirch. The tree planting was a great success and served as a reminder that trees play an integral role in our urban infrastructure and are essential to the magnificence of Jacksonville’s landscape.
