Driessen Fellow Organizes Tree Planting

The world is a little bit greener today thanks to the work of CFACT Driessen Fellow Victoria Sellhausen and her student group from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. 

Recently the group organized a tree planting in Downer Woods near the school. Together they spent the afternoon picking out the “perfect” oak tree and identifying a location to display the magnificent hardwood. Being carful to follow department of agriculture guidelines on how to transplant trees from a container into the ground, the students are confident they will be able to come back to this site for many years to come to see its growth.

Said group leader, Victoria, of the event, “there is nothing better to do on a cold day than planting a tree!”
