Today Allandale residents and volunteers planted 48 trees at Sheffield / Northwest Park.  This was a reward for taking 2nd place in the habitat challenge sponsored by the City’s Parks department through the Keep Austin Wild program.  TreeFolks donated 48 trees and the Austin Parks Foundation paid for a new irrigation system.  The Parks Department’s Forestry group – namely – Emily King helped lay out the tree planting plan and Linnea Lemon Anderson parks committee chair for the Allandale neighborhood associationcoordinated the efforts on the neighborhood side including site selection, planning the date, recruiting volunteers and providing publicity and snacks.
