TATC Tree Planting - Pleasure House Point

  • 4 Feb 2023
  • 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • 3957 Marlin Bay Drive, Virginia Beach, va

*** Time Changed to 8:30 to 12:00 *** 

TATC’s next tree planting is scheduled for FEBRUARY 4th, 2023, at Pleasure House Point on Marlin Bay Drive in Virginia Beach.

We will be planting 25 trees for the City of Virginia Beach. This effort will require us to get the trees from the street drop-off area to their planting location using wheel borrows. In addition, we will have to dig the planting holes in the sandy soil as there is no way to get an auger machine to the planting sites.

Lance Deaver and Dave Plum will be picking up the trees at the nursery that morning and delivering them to the site. Jim Newman will coordinate the onsite sign-up and oversee the hole preparation that will begin prior to the arrival of the trees.

Plan to bring your personal shovels and garden rakes to complete the planting. If you have a wheelbarrow, please bring that if you can. The city staff may also provide shovels and wheelbarrows.

We will meet up at Pleasure House Point (3957 Marlin Bay Drive, Virginia Beach) at 9:00 AM to get organized. The city staff will mark where each species of tree is to be planted.

Please contact Dave Plum at: localtrails@tidewateratc.com to sign up to let him know if you can bring a wheelbarrow.

Based on what we have been able to accomplish on previous planting efforts, we should be able to complete this planting by noon or shortly thereafter.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring work gloves. Water and snacks will be provided.
