The Birth Tree Project celebrates the arrival of each newborn and newly-adopted child in the Williston community by offering a tree or shrub for the family to plant on their property. The 2019 celebration will be Sunday, October 6, 2019, at Gardener’s Supply in Williston. Families who register by September 24th, 2019 (Registration for 2019 is now closed) for the program will receive their free trees and shrubs, and enjoy activities including crafts and food treats. All Williston Residents are invited to attend and join in the celebration.
We believe that inviting families to plant native trees on their property instills a sense of community pride, have positive impact on wildlife, and contribute to a cleaner and better environment for all residents. Taking the responsibility to help the tree grow and provide tender loving care is an example of good stewardship that supports sustainability in the community. It offers today’s children as well as future generations a place to live and grow in harmony with nature. We hope this project becomes part of Williston’s culture and heritage.
Children born or adopted into Williston families between September 2019 and September 2020 will be eligible for the 2020 Birth Tree Project: you can register here. Children born or adopted between September 2020 and September 2021 will be eligible for the 2021 event and can also register here.
The Birth Tree Project is run by Sustainable Williston with the generous support of Gardener’s Supply, and the Town of Williston.
