One of the trees the Township will be planting at Copley Community Park on Saturday, April 30, from 11-2 pm is a Red Oak.
The Red Oak is a tree known for its fast growth. The tree is unique, and it doesn’t compare to any Red Oak class of trees. It grows fast, and has an open canopy which enables it to grow tall. The trees have a great color during summer, and the foliage is an excellent source of food for wildlife and squirrels. The trees have a bark that develops into ridges and darkens over time.
Along with planting a few much-needed shade trees, we will be offering a mulching project and fun activities. If you would like to volunteer for this day, please let us know. Saturday 11 am to 2 pm, April 30.
