Trees for Houston plants trees at Krimmel Intermediate
The nonprofit Trees for Houston organization joined Krimmel Intermediate School environmental club students in Spring to plant 25 trees on the school campus Saturday, Nov. 17.
Trees for Houston has planted more than 8,000 trees at nearly 26 school campuses since 1994 and more than 420,000 trees in Houston during its 29-year existence, according to a press release.
"We have been anxiously waiting since last spring for this opportunity to beautify our campus," said Holly Walsh, English teacher and environmental club sponsor, in the release. "We are thrilled that they have chosen Krimmel for these much-needed trees, and we are excited to start digging now that the planting season is upon us."
Walsh was responsible for reaching out to Trees for Houston last year to assess whether the school would qualify for the tree-planting program.
The Krimmel environmental club tends the vegetables and flowers planted on the campus and helps with the campus recycling program.
Trees for Houston maintains and monitors the new trees for two years to ensure survival in its planting locations.
Krimmel Intermediate School is at 7070 Farm to Market 2920, Spring.
