Tree-rific School

Check out this story on about the Blades “Tree-riffic School” award.

Delaware’s Urban and Community Forestry Program established the “Tree-rific School” program to recognize those Delaware schools that are committed to protecting and enhancing their tree resources, and incorporate trees into their curriculum.

On November 2, 2011, Blades Elementary School in the Seaford School District was recognized as the state’s first “Tree-rific School” during a planting event in which students helped plant 30 trees as part of an effort to increase tree canopy in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The Delaware Forest Service is looking forward to recognizing more Delaware schools with its “Tree-rific School” recognition.
