The Urban Forestry Project has planted about 3,400 trees in Cape Coral since its inception five years ago. It currently does about 2,000 per year.

Ringland applied in January for the grant for Rotary Park, and the club was notified Wednesday that it had been awarded funding. According to Ringland, the money will pay for 100 trees with a caliber range of 2 inches to 2 1/2 inches. They plan to plant pine, oak and mahogany – all native to the area.

“There’s less room at the park so we’re opting to put in larger trees,” he said. “We’re getting a little bit bigger tree for the dollar so they mature quicker and can make shade a little bit quicker for the kids.”

But, Ringland added, it will still take time for the shade trees to grow.

“You’ve got to start somewhere,” he said.
