A Summer Trip to The Casey Tree Farm

Last week our Communications and Development (C&D) team got to check a major box off their Casey Trees check list by taking a special summer field trip to the Casey Tree Farm!

So what do you get when you send the Casey Trees C&D team to the Casey Tree Farm with three cameras and a GoPro? Thousands of pictures, a few Leaflet stories and a lot of smiles!

Here is a recap of our trip and just a few of the many pictures we hope to share with you!

Reid took us to the “Sky Box” … giving us an amazing view of the 760 acre farm!

And thus began the hunt for the perfect photo:
