Graniteroots for John Edwards to Canvass New Hampshire and Distribute Tree Saplings

(Manchester, NH) – On Saturday, September 15th, and Sunday, September 16th, the Graniteroots for John Edwards will hold canvasses across New Hampshire, where volunteers will discuss Senator Edwards’ bold environmental policies and distribute tree saplings. Edwards for President national campaign manager Congressman David Bonior will participate in the canvass and help hand out tree saplings across the state.

“This Graniteroots canvass is not just about discussing John’s bold plans to combat global warming, achieve energy independence, and create good paying jobs,” said Congressman Bonior. “Giving out these saplings will also help get neighbors talking to neighbors about the steps we can all take in our own lives to protect our environment.”

The Graniteroots for John Edwards will be distributing 8,000 White Spruce saplings at canvasses throughout the state. Exact times and locations can be viewed at:

The White Spruce is a medium-sized evergreen tree that grows 60-90 feet tall on average. It grows well throughout New Hampshire and New England, and is often used for erosion control and site reclamation because it is adaptable to a wide range of planting sites.
