Special Tree Planting at Hollis Elementary School

Special Tree Planting at Hollis Elementary School

Students in Mrs. Bshara's and Ms. Daniels' BE Group joined Mrs. Pinkham, Math Coach and Garden Coordinator, for a special tree planting work session at Hollis Elementary School.

Mrs. Pinkham received 2 very special saplings from RETREE US in partnership with UNE. The University of New England’s Department of Environmental Studies is partnering with The American Chestnut Foundation to produce hybrid, blight resistant trees.

Read more here about the plight of the American Chestnut tree which for hundreds of years dotted the landscape with magnificent trees that literally got wiped out from an imported fungus from overseas.

These trees are part of a study and pilot group of trees that will hopefully succeed and thrive in our local environment. Thanks to both of these groups for sharing their work and resources with us. We cannot wait to see these trees blossom and produce lots of chestnuts for years to come.
