Spring Tree Planting

2022 Spring Tree Planting

On Wednesday, May 11th Waverly-Shell Rock Middle School students will team with the City of Waverly staff and Trees Forever volunteers to plant over 115 trees along Waverly’s streets, parks and public spaces. Planting will take place in the morning between 8:30 am and 11:30 pm. This planting is possible thanks to funding from Waverly Utilities, an Iowa DNR Community Forestry grant, a MidAmerican Energy Trees Please grant, and Trees Forever.  

Volunteers are welcome to help with the efforts to restore Waverly’s tree canopy. If interested in volunteering for the planting day on May 11th, contact Waverly Leisure Services at 319-352-6263. Please bring shovels and gloves if you can, all other supplies will be provided by Waverly Trees Forever and City of Waverly staff.
