Many hands make light work

How many volunteers does it take to plant a tree? Twelve, judging from the 1,200 student and community volunteers who turned out March 24 to plant 100 trees along Walnut Street from 43rd to 48th streets as part of a beautification project sponsored by UC Green and local property owners. Here, Penn students Nick Severini (C’04, left), Jeff Bagnoli (C’03, middle) and Eugene Cacovean (C’03, right) finish planting a tree. Thanks to the turnout, the entire 100-tree project was completed in only two hours.
