Summary: Large tree planting project in the new Heritage Park in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

In honor of Rotary International President Ian Riseley's visit to Idaho Falls and helping the Idaho Falls Rotary Club break ground on the Heritage Park project and his tree planting initiative; the Idaho Falls Rotary Club seeks a District Matching Grant for the purpose of planting large, substantial trees in the new Heritage Park.

Why trees?

Trees provide many benefits in urban settings. They reduce air and noise pollution, help conserve water, save energy, and reduce soil erosion, saving money, enhancing businesses and providing beauty to the places in which we live and work. Idaho Department of Lands

The Rotary Club of Idaho Falls is working with the City of Idaho Falls and their park project architect to provide the proper tree selections for this project. At a minimum we propose to plant these suggested trees.

Four (4), Weeping Willow, 3"

Two (2), Bur Oak, 4-5"

Three (3) Greenspire Linden, 4-5"

Two (2), Emerald Queen Maple, 4-5"

Three (3), River Birch, 4-5"

Three (3), River Birch Clump, 12-14'

It is expected the cost of these 17 sizable trees will be $10,017.

The Rotary Club of Idaho Falls will work with the city and provide the needed labor to plant the trees in the park. Additionally, we will work with the City of Idaho Falls and Rotary will create a large plaque in honor of President Ian Riseley's visit and tree planting initiative.

We envision the community at large, and especially the children, enjoying the park and these trees as an integral part of the Heritage Park.
