STL TreeLC hosted a tree demo, community canvass and happy hour on Cherokee Street to connect people who want to improve our urban tree canopy. Jim Merkel from joined us to write about the event for The SouthSider.

GRAVOIS PARK – Some budding arborists set out from Cherokee Street on Tuesday night, intent on saving struggling saplings and keeping neighborhoods flush with trees.

Hosted by a new group called STL TreeLC, they went forth and dumped mulch around the young trees – but not next to them, to keep the protective covering from providing a hiding place for varmints intent on harming the street trees.
