Where are the trees for El Chacon and Slaughter Park?

Another 100 Trees for North Central Park

Just four months after the first 100 tree planting event, District VI Council Member Gene Belmares is inviting the community to come out once again and help him plant another 100 trees at North Central Park on Saturday, March 20, 2009, starting at 8:00 a.m.

“This will truly be a great tree-hugging experience,” stated Belmares.

The next 100 trees that will be planted will also be trees whose foliage will change color in the fall, creating a true “New York Central Park” feel to the hundreds of walkers, runners, bikers and everyone in between who takes advantage of the park’s approximate 2.7 miles of pathway. However, in order to plant 100 trees, Belmares needs the assistance of volunteers willing to help make Laredo even more beautiful. Any Laredo citizen age 12 and over is invited to sign up. Simply contact the City of Laredo Environmental Services Department at 794-1650 for more information. Or, for registration and liability forms contact Keep Laredo Beautiful via e-mail at to sign up oneself, family, school, church or place of business
