A 43 Trees Project Update

It's been more than a month since The 43 Trees Project Earth Day Walk, and we figured that we should let everyone know what we've been doing.

The rush to our Earth Day walk was so intense that afterwards we decided to take a couple of weeks off from the project. Now that we're back, we have begun work on additional content for the web site.  This will include videos, readings, some surprises, and updates from the park.

And in the latest update from Roosevelt Park, one of the things we have noticed is the difference from when Super Storm Sandy hit New Jersey last October.  The Middlesex County Parks and Recreation Department has made a major effort to clean up many of the fallen trees and branches, and many others are almost invisible due to the Spring growth.  Some of these changes can be seen in our friend Hugo (below), who stood so tall and broken and now has been over-run by Poison Ivy.  To see his portrait from last fall click here.

Finally, The 43 Trees Project Lives!  Within the next couple of weeks we will have a major announcement about the next phase of The 43 Trees Project. Until then, enjoy the summer and think of us as you are sitting under the cool shade of your favorite tree.
