A community effort to reforest Frisco

As the pine beetle infestation forces more dead trees to be taken down, the Town of Frisco is looking to the community to help replant new ones.

Please join the Town on Saturday, Aug. 9, from 8 a.m. to noon for a tree planting day at the Peninsula Recreation Area.

The Town of Frisco is providing 150 Colorado Spruce trees about 3 to 4 feet high, and seedlings to plant all around the PRA. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Frisco Nordic Building at 8 a.m. to get their assignments.

Free refreshments will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves, a water bottle, sunscreen, a shovel and a long-sleeved shirt.

Nearly 34,000 trees have been removed at the PRA in the past nine years due to the pine beetle infestation.

This is the second tree planting day at the PRA. Volunteers successfully planted 100 trees on June 21.

For more information on the August 9 PRA tree planting day, please contact Chris Johnsen at (970) 668-0836, ext. 1312, or chrisj@townoffrisco.com.
