Can you dig it? We knew you could. Begun in 1990 as part of the then-new Community Forestry Unit, the ReLeaf Boise campaign is a shovel-toting band of citizen volunteers who have planted thousands of trees on public rights-of-way throughout the City of Trees. This year's plantings, set for Saturday, April 30, 8 a.m. -2 p.m., will see nearly 80 trees set into dozens of public sites throughout the city. If you're apt to join this year's ReLeaf brigade, you should also circle Thursday, April 28 on your calendar. That's when, beginning at 7 p.m., prospective volunteers are required to attend a tree planting class.
As city officials are quick to point out, "It's much more than just digging a hole."
