Community Roots Day is a volunteer tree-planting event that takes place every year adding shade, fresh air, and extra character to our neighborhoods. In the past 20 years, over 7,000 trees have been planted on streets throughout Winston-Salem, helping our community earn the honor of being named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Foundation for the twelfth consecutive year. The 20th Annual Community Roots Day was held in October along New Walkertown Road and the Newell/Massey Greenway.
Community Roots day is sponsored by the Forsyth County Community Appearance Commission, Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful, and the City of Winston-Salem Vegetation Management Department, and is only possible through donations from businesses and individuals.
The Community Appearance Commission and the City-County Planning Board staff applaud our citizens for their dedication and hard work.
The 2013 Community Roots Day will be held on Saturday, October 26, in the Castle Heights neighborhood. Registration will be located at Solid Rock Baptist Church, 3010 Carver School Road. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. A doughnut breakfast and a hot dog lunch will be provided for all participants.
