Tree Trust Work Plan

As part of our stipulation agreement with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, we are partnering with Tree Trust to plant trees in communities surrounding Water Gremlin and on the Water Gremlin campus itself. Tree Trust recently released its plan (below) outlining how many and what kind of trees will be planted in specific parks and neighborhoods across White Bear Township, White Bear Lake and Gem Lake.

The work to plant these trees will continue this fall. Click here to sign up to volunteer at one of the tree planting events.
