    Goldman Sachs volunteers came to BBG on April 17th for the annual Community TeamWorks volunteer day on Cherry Esplanade. BBG Arborists Chris Roddick and Travis Wolf lead the group in mulching and edging the Liberty Oaks on the eastern and western edges of Cherry Esplanade, which were planted in remembrance of the events of September 11. The group also planted a new Prunus 'Kanzan' cherry tree on Cherry Esplanade, adding to the two trees Goldman Sachs volunteers planted last year. BBG appreciates the hard work of the Goldman Sachs employees and looks forward to the next Community TeamWorks day in June!
