150 Trees Planted at Jubilee Point Park as Part of Arbor Day Celebration

Woodridge Park District staff and volunteers from Jefferson Junior High School Staff and Student Council and Davey Tree Expert Company planted 150 native trees at Jubilee Point Park on Arbor Day, Friday, April 26. Earlier this year, the Park District applied for and was awarded two grants to offset prioritized natural area enhancement work at Jubilee Point Park. The $3,000 Trees Forever and $2,000 Illinois Park District Habitat Improvement grants were used to help purchase the trees for the park and Davey Tree donated mulch for the planting event.

The previous spring invasive and hazardous tree removals paired with these new native tree plantings will help increase access through the site as well as biodiversity of the natural areas improving habitat for native wildlife.  The next step in natural area improvement work at Jubilee Point Park will include Park District staff installing a diverse native seed mix this spring. The improvement work being done this year will continue over the next several years in accordance with the goals recommended in the approved Jubilee Point Park Natural Area Improvement Plan.

Please note, with the increased cicada activity expected this spring and summer, volunteers and staff will continue to cover these young trees with netting to protect them from possible negative impacts associated with the insects.  A full album of today’s event can be found here.
