CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Rooted in Cheyenne will be holding a tree planting event this Saturday and expects to plant 110 trees in the community.

This program began as a way to replant trees around Cheyenne that had been dying off. Rooted in Cheyenne plants trees for the city as well as for homeowners who want more trees around their house.

Not only that, but the program makes a day of it by getting members of the community involved and throwing a party afterwards. Volunteers are asked to commit at least 4 hours and will get a free t-shirt, with breakfast and lunch included.

“It’s a really fun time. You get to learn how to plant trees from professionals. You get to make a difference in your community. And it feels good, for sure.”

For more information and how to register to volunteer for this event this weekend, go to Rooted in Cheyenne’s website.
