Plant Something Day was a resounding success last month, as Cityscapes was able to flawlessly plant a Green Threadleaf Japanese Maple on the corner of St. James and Clarendon Streets! John Hancock/Manulife was thrilled to be the site of the planting on May 15. Cityscapes loves doing its part to make the world a greener place and hopefully we can influence others to do the same.

Don’t Just Stand There… PLANT SOMETHING!
Boston Residents to Celebrate the Benefits of Planting at 197 Clarendon Street on May 15 at 2:00 pm
Volunteers from Cityscapes in Boston will coordinate a public planting as a part of the “Don’t Just Stand There… PLANT SOMETHING!” campaign taking place across the Commonwealth on May 15, 2013.
“Don’t Just Stand There” is an initiative to encourage everyone in Massachusetts to enjoy the benefits of planting.
Residents will gather at 197 Clarendon at 2:00 pm on May 15 to plant a beautiful new tree.
“Plants are so beneficial to the environment, especially in urban areas like Boston. I also think it is important to have these symbols of present and future healthy growth in light of what has transpired in our city recently,” said Jan Goodman, owner of Cityscapes Inc.
Plants and trees absorb carbon dioxide, filter dust and pollutants out of rainwater, and contribute to a sense of well-being. People who grow their own food increase their vegetable consumption and save an average of $500 a year on their food budget.
Gardening also contributes to the local economy. Massachusetts’ professional environmental horticulturalists- the people who grow, care for, design, and install plantings and landscapes in your community- contribute $2.6 billion to the Massachusetts economy and employ 68,000 people.
The public planting is being organized by Cityscapes Inc., and the tree and other materials are being donated by Cityscapes Inc. as well.
“Don’t Just Stand There…PLANT SOMETHING on May 15!” is a new campaign to help everyone enjoy the benefits of planting. The campaign is an initiative of Plant Something MA, a joint program of the Massachusetts Flower Growers Association (MFGA) and the Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA). Plant Something MA seeks to get more people to enjoy gardening and support their local, independent nurseries, garden centers, landscapers and growers.
