RE: Proposal for Planting Trees at ADDRESS

Dear Name of Relevant Person:

This letter is a formal proposal from the Freshman Class of Name of High School, YEAR, to plant 20 trees in the vacant lot that is located at ADDRESS. The lot is next to the high school and the class would like to beautify the area. The lot has been vacant for the past 15 years and has become a dumping ground for trash. The city owns the property. 

Our class proposes to:

• Clear all the trash from the lot
• Prepare the ground for planting
• Plant 20 trees of different species
• Water and maintain the trees for the next three years

The father of one of the students owns the landscaping business, NAME OF BUSINESS, and his employees will prepare the ground for planting after the students have cleared away all the trash. The students have their own shovels and spades. If Name of City would like to donate the trees, it would be most welcome.

Otherwise, we will receive 20 donated trees from the locality. We would like to start the project in early June of this year, so it can be completed during the summer vacation.

If you would like any more information, I can be reached at Phone Number or Email Address. 

Thank you for your consideration of the Tree Planting Proposal.

Sincerely,

Signature of Principal or Teacher
Printed Name of Principal or Teacher
