Irvington Re-Leaf
re-leaf-smaller - 35%.jpg
Con Edison will be donating 3 trees to be planted as part of the culminating ceremony on Earth Day 40:Growing Our Village Green. This tree planting ceremony is the kick-off for the long term Re-Leaf Irvington initiative, organized by the Irvington Tree Commission. Local elected officials have been invited to participate in the Earth Day 40 event, and especially to attend the tree planting ceremony.
 
Con Edison also agreed to provide several hundred seedlings, with directions for planting and care, to Irvington children who visit Main Street on Earth Day 40. The current plans call for a Con Edison Senior Arborist to meet with children at the IK Benjamin Recreation Center, handing out the tree seedlings and explaining the importance of and care of trees. Also at the Rec Center that day, the Greenburgh Nature Center will have local animals and discussions of protecting the animals' natural habitat, and a child centered band will be playing, focused on environmentally friendly behavior.
