Students admiring our Native Redbuds...

Trees are a great investment, and will always appreciate in value. This is difficult to keep in mind when at a local nursery and when you turn over a price tag, often the tree is over one hundred dollars, and sometimes into the thousands!
Often, here in the grounds department, we get chances to team up and root in with organizations that are working on campus projects and other projects that assist students in their educational endeavors. This spring we are supplying the SCC Outdoors Crew with trees that will be sold as a fund raiser opportunity. The proceeds benefit the SCC Outdoors Crew Club that partakes in many Green and ecological projects, whether cleaning up a local stream, or studying ecology across the United States, this club is one of the most active clubs on campus.
Arbor day is just around the corner, and planting a tree with a child or grand child is a special moment of bonding, and a great educational opportunity for the both of you! So if you are interested in a new tree, look no further. Trees are around one to two feet tall, planted in one gallon pots and sell for only six dollars each, or a three for fifteen dollar deal! This is a TREEMENDOUS savings and you can feel confident your funding is helping SCC students leaf out. These trees go fast and are in limited supply so order yours today! E-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order today. I hope you enjoyed all of my puns.
