As an advocate of the think green environmental cause, the “Green Team” at Biological Tree Services is donating its time by planting a live oak tree in honor of Arbor Day 2009. The tree’s recipient is Oak Park School, located on the shores of Lake Sarasota. Students and teachers at the school will be on hand to assist with the planting scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Friday morning. Also, students will receive a pine sapling, sustainable planting materials, and a trowel to plant their own tree at home. The oak tree and mulch were donated by Albritton’s Nursery of Sarasota.
For the tree planting, BTS will be using biologically based products during the installation to create a self-sustaining root system which will make the tree healthy the natural way. As a Certified Arborist and member of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), BTS owner Tammy Kovar welcomes opportunities to share her love of trees with young people.
