TREE PLANTING TO BE HELD NOVEMBER 13 AT FALCONS FIELD PARK
(November 4, 2010) The City of Frisco is among a dozen cities getting a chance to plant itself -- literally -- in the history of Super Bowl XLV.
As part of Super Grow XLV, 15 donated trees will be planted at Falcons Field Park, 1911 Spirit Falls Drive, on Saturday, November 13 beginning at 8 a.m.
Mayor Maher Maso and fellow members of the Frisco City Council, as well as members of Frisco’s Urban Forestry Board, and Frisco Parks and Recreation Department will lend their hands to plant the 30 gallon trees. Residents are welcome to attend.
“We’re honored to be one of 12 North Texas cities selected as beneficiaries of Super Grow XLV,” said Mayor Maher Maso. “This donation helps beautify our community while benefiting future generations and promoting green living.”
In December, Christie Elementary students will receive 500 seedlings as part of Super Grow XLV.
Super Grow XLV is the result of teamwork involving several organizations, namely, the Texas Trees Foundation, the National Football League’s Environmental Program, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, and the Texas Forest Service.
Aside from Frisco, other cities participating in Super Grow XLV include: Addison, Arlington, Dallas, Denton, Farmers Branch, Fort Worth, Grapevine, Irving, Lewisville, Plano and Richardson. These dozen host cities will be honored at Touchdown for Trees, which will be held January 24 in Arlington.
