No Ivy Day at Gateway Green

Join us October 13, 2012 from 9am to noon at Gateway Green for No Ivy Day. Gateway Green’s 12 wooded acres are currently dominated by English ivy, an aggressive and invasive specie. Help build on previous volunteers efforts by saving trees in immediate danger of being killed by ivy. Volunteers will focus on “Girdling”, cutting a solid ring of the ivy at both knee height and chest height, and pulling ivy away from the base of trees.
