Friday October 28 is Tree Pittsburgh's 4th Annual Arbor Aid

Tree Pittsburgh is excited to announce its 4th annual fundraising event, Arbor Aid 2011.  Featuring art created from salvaged wood,  Arbor Aid celebrates trees as a living resource, daily providing benefits to city residents, and encourages creativity in thinking about extending their useful lives as furniture, flooring, artwork, and beyond.

Arbor Aid 2011 features artwork by more than 40 local artists and woodworkers.  There will be a farm-to-table meal at handmade tables, catered by E2 (E Squared) at 7pm,  followed by a general admission party at 9pm.  All proceeds benefit Tree Pittsburgh, an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the City’s vitality by restoring and protecting City trees.
