Cheyenne's Planting Day sees 100 trees planted

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) Rooted in Cheyenne celebrated Cheyenne's Planting Day by planting around 100 trees around the city.

Normally, Rooted in Cheyenne has 60 to 80 volunteers to help with this project, but they have had to scale back and operate with limited crews.

Around 70 residents applied online earlier this year to receive one or two trees. Rooted in Cheyenne dug the tree holes before crew arrived, then, crews were able to plant the trees. Trees were planted with fresh dirt and mulch.

They were then supported by stakes, watered, and given gator bags to give them enough moisture to last until they need watered again.

Some trees were planted in newer neighborhoods where the trees were knocked over or dying.

Rooted in Cheyenne has opened it's fall tree applications, found here.

They are also accepting volunteer applications for the summer season, to water the trees planted in the Spring. Those applications can be found here.
