Tree Cages

Our primary activity will be constructing and installing tree cages for the newly planted trees along Quincy Run. We will do this as an assembly line:

  • 4 people cutting mesh min 5 ft (wire cutters, tape measure)

  • 2 people driving stakes - 1 per tree (mallet, starter pin, stakes)

  • 3 people clearing invasive vines (fire rakes and bags)

  • 2 people spreading hydroseed (on exposed soil)

  • 3 people per tree installing cages
