Service Project - George Bush Park

On February 28, 2009 Troop 505 planted, mulched, and staked sixteen trees along the entrance road to the George Bush Park meeting room. Hal Hilton, Precinct 3 Park manager, remarked that the work was excellent, the trees were aligned well, and the workers were very efficient. Special thanks go out to Harris County Precint Three and Commissioner Steve Radack for supplying all the necessary trees, materials, and tools to complete the project. With all the available help on hand, we were able to finish the project ahead of schedule.

After the first hole was dug (I thought my dad was digging a swimming pool!) we became very good at outlining the hole to the proper measurements of the tree's root bed (Mrs. Debo applied her educator's knowledge to this) and planting the trees with ease. We learned that a wind-aided styrofoam plate will travel a long way, wheel barrows can tip over, a shovel can cause you to lose your balance, and trees like these Live Oaks don't just plant themselves.
