Adopt a Block
Families, neighbors or community groups may sponsor the maintenance of a Village street or right-of-way grouping of trees, possibly an entire block, providing funding for the annual pruning, care and feeding for the trees. Regular pruning could train a tree away from any overhead wires while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing form, thus reducing or mitigating the unsightly impact of future utility line clearing cycles.
Keep It Green!
In conjunction with the donation programs, the Tree Commission is planning a program of public education concerning “how to”: how to plant a tree, water, prune, maintain and select a tree – especially useful for trees on private property which must be maintained by individual homeowners. Tree Commission provides lists of recommended trees and shrubs so as to ensure that residents can select “the right tree for the right place”.
