Westside medians get some attention


Delbridge said because this planting is taking place on city property, the City of Indianapolis donated to the cause.

“The City of Indianapolis actually gave money to care for a lot of these trees for three years,” he said. “So it’s a big commitment and they really stepped up for the neighborhood.”

Delbridge said this is the last planting for the season, but there will be more coming in the spring, hopefully on the Westside.

“All of our plantings come from our residents who apply for trees,” Delbridge said. “We’d love to see more Westside plantings. Trees are free to applicants, they just have to organize the neighborhood, recruit volunteers, and figure out how to water the trees.”

For people looking to help a good cause, Delbridge said this is a great way to give back.

“With this planting, we had people from all of the surrounding neighborhoods, we also recruited volunteers through Keep Indianapolis Beautiful,” he said. “Some people are from the Youth Tree Team program (for local high school students) … We couldn’t do the work if we didn’t have volunteers coming out and helping plant.”
