CFACT UMass Tree Planting

On Saturday March 27, 2011 CFACT Umass took some time to clean up the local foot hills and plant some pine trees.

“The local hills make a great place to hike and hang out. The problem is that a lot of people will leave trash and trample young trees,” said CFACT UMass Chairman Dmitriy Shapiro.

“This was the first tree I have ever planted,” said CFACT member Ed Lopez. When my friends and I hike up here I can check up on my tree now and make sure it’s doing o.k.

The trail leading up to the crest of the hill is known for being littered with trash so the CFACT students decided to bring some trash bags up along with them to clean it up.

The trip lasted about three hours and everyone left feeling a sense of accomplishment. “I feel like a good steward,” said Dmitriy. “I do too!” replied Ed Lopez.
