And so it begins...

With all the planning almost completed, it was time to get a feel for how people would respond to being asked to take part in our project by signing up for a free street tree.

I decided to go to a few houses (~8) to see what would happen... to my surprise and satisfaction, the residents to which I offered the service to were very willing to sign up for a tree! Three people immediately signed up, while the others said yes but wanted to check with their spouses who were not home at the moment. I will be going back on Saturday or Sunday when people will most likely be home and see if I can get at least another 25 people signed up for free street trees!
