We are deferring the tree-planting on Burnet Rd from this Saturday, September 22, to Saturday October 13, 9 to noon.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of this last minute change of plans. We ran into additional legal requirements not previously communicated by some of our project stakeholders. This was not due to a lack of diligence by our project planning team.
The good news is that the new requirements appear to be solvable, and so we are pressing on with a plan to combine the Burnet Rd planting with the one at McCallum HS and on N Lamar. We've already obtained about half the 65 trees for the project. They include oaks, maples, elms, walnut, cypress, yaupon, Mexican plum and Texas redbud. We'll have a lot of work to do on October 13, but with a little extra planning and lots of spirited volunteers, I think things will work out.
