January 18, 2024 — Forty-sixth Planting (5 trees)

Duke Raleigh Hospital's volunteers, led by Dalia Hussein, teamed up with Trees for the Triangle staff and volunteers to contribute to the Cary Tree Archive project. Responding to Dalia's inquiry, the organization eagerly coordinated a one-day group activity for her team of eleven on Thursday, January 18th. The collaborative effort aimed at enhancing the local environment involved the planting of five trees within the Archive, including native magnolia and hybrid gordonia varieties. Despite the freezing cold, the dedicated volunteers demonstrated their commitment to the community by giving it their all in this impactful effort.

In addition to the tree planting, the volunteers engaged in the essential task of mulching the Memorial Grove. This meticulous process not only nurtured the existing trees but also provided a nurturing environment for new plantings to thrive. The joint efforts of Duke Raleigh Hospital's volunteers and Trees for the Triangle exemplify the power of community collaboration in fostering environmental sustainability and contributing to the overall well-being of the Cary community.
