Rees Elementary students set example and dig in to plant trees

Rees Eagles at Rees Elementary had the opportunity to learn more about caring for their school and the community by planting three new trees. 

Fourth through sixth-grade students worked with TreeUtah, a non-profit organization dedicated to planting trees in October to do just that. 

They planted two Honey Locusts trees and one Bosnian Pine to beautify Rees’ campus. Students learned how to help trees grow and benefit the community. 

When planting the trees, students learned how to spread the roots, add nutrients to the soil, shovel dirt, water the trees, and mulch the base of each tree. These trees are not only will be used by teachers at Rees to teach about the water cycle, scientific observations, ecosystems, and other curriculum-based topics. 

Each class will have their own “class” tree to monitor and take care of. (Serve Daily submission.)
