Savor the Square Tree Giveaway / Roxbury Arbor Day
Bringing together food, fun, entertainment and trees, in the heart of Roxbury!
Join Speak for the Trees and The American City Coalition (TACC) for our ‘3rd Annual Savor the Square Tree Giveaway’ in Nubian Square for Roxbury Arbor Day! This event is sponsored by Verizon and in collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation.
Savor the Square brings people together and connects them to local businesses and other community members. It celebrates and leverages the history and cultural assets for social and business development, and expands neighborhood vitality.
Roxbury is listed as an EJ (environmental justice) community, where tree canopy coverage is at an inequitable level in comparison to other towns in the Greater Boston area. At Speak for the Trees, we work at the intersection of environmental justice, racial and social equity, public health, and climate change to advocate for a healthy and equitable urban forest in all Boston neighborhoods.
Species include (10 of each tree; 50 trees total): European Hornbeam, Eastern Redbud, White Fringetree, Flowering Dogwood, Sourwood.
