VOLUNTEERS PLANT 36 TREES AT 6th ANNUAL FOR THE LOVE OF CHRISTI MEMORIAL GROVE TREE PLANTING

Various community volunteers and City of Round Rock Forestry staff will plant 36 trees in Old Settlers Park on Saturday, October 14 at 9 a.m. for the sixth annual Memorial Grove Tree Planting.

Each fall, Round Rock Parks and Recreation partners with For the Love of Christi to plant a memorial grove at Old Settlers Park.

“In 2001 we planted the very first memorial tree grove at Old Settlers Park along with For the Love of Christi,” city forester Emsud Horozovic said. “These groves offer comfort to persons whose lives have been impacted by tragedy and give family members and friends a place to grieve.”

A dedication ceremony will be held on October 28 at 11 a.m. with For The Love of Christi, a non-denominational, non-profit organization which provides help and ongoing support to individuals and families facing the loss of a loved one. For the Love of Christi has more than 1300 members in Williamson County. With each Memorial Tree Grove, trees are planted for future generations to enjoy in honor of generations past.

In the past six years, 183 trees have been planted in groves across Old Settlers Park through the Memorial Grove program. Each grove is marked with a memorial plaque.

“It’s a great partnership that we have at the city with For the Love of Christi,” Horozovic said. “We’ve provided them with the acreage they need to plant multiple groves of trees in Old Settlers Park. In the past 5 years, I’ve watched the entire north-west corner of our park as it has been transformed into a memorial grove.”

To sign up as a volunteer for future tree plantings please call the Round Rock Volunteer Center at 512-733-7625. If you have questions about the event, or trees in general, call Emsud Horozovic, Round Rock Urban Forester at (512) 218-5540.
