posted Jul 15, 2010, 9:55 AM by Reid Serozi
The NeighborWoods Street Tree Program has been plugging away since 2003
and this year we're celebrating the delivery of our 10,000th tree! You
can have the honor of making THE donation that purchases the 10,000th
tree. Any citizen who makes a donation of $25 or more between now and
October 15th will be entered into a drawing. One lucky winner will be
eligible to participate in the tree planting with Mayor Meeker at Nash
Square, dedicate a plaque with their name, receive a $50 REI gift card
and bike tune-up, enjoy a Whole Foods gift card, and win a gift
certificate to The Busy Bee Cafe!

To enter to win please send your donation of $25 or more to:

Raleigh NeighborWoods
4225 Daly Rd.
Raleigh, NC 27604

Winners will be notified by phone on October 15th.

Trees benefit our city in numerous ways... better air and water quality,
reduced energy costs, beautification, and urban wildlife habitat. The
City of Raleigh replenishes our urban forest by delivering at least 1500
FREE TREES to citizens every year. NeighborWoods is a cooperative effort
where the city provides expertise and delivers the trees, then the
public plants and cares for the tree. The best part... every single
tree is purchased with donated funds.
