An Oak tree is a daily reminder that great things often have small beginnings. – Matshona Dhliwayo
Oak trees represent timelessness, strength and good luck and are some of the most magnificent trees found on earth. The Garden District Civic Association created a non-profit to care for these majestic beasts The Live Oak Love Collective is campaign lauched by the Garden District Civic Association’s 501(c)3 to care, prune, fertilize and amend the soil for the magnificent oak trees along the boulevards on Park Boulevard, Cherokee Street, Kleinert Avenue and Terrace Avenue.
Beginning in January of 2021, twelve trees have been selected for a makeover!! That’s right, 12 lucky oaks are having a Spa Day courtesy of you and the Garden District Civic Association. In the coming weeks, you will see signs emerging around these winners and will be able to see the smiles on the branches as they are pruned and mulched!
How You Can Help!
The Garden District has 164 fabulous oak trees that are in desperate need of care. The Association has met with the City over the last several years, and there is currently no City funds to assist us in caring for the trees. Therefore it is our responsibility as conscientious citizens and neighbors to help our majestic oak trees. We need to raise $175,000 to care for all of our trees.
How We Are Going To Do That?
- Donations! Donations! DONATIONS!
- Evening with the Trees Champagne Picnic
- Dinner Fundraiser
