Community Tree Planting

Saturday, November 18, 2017

On Saturday, November 18th 2017 at 9 a.m. there will be a Community Tree Planting at Forbes Library, 20 West Street and we need your help! Join us to plant 8 scarlet oaks along the public shade tree belt. These trees will replace the oak trees that were removed over the last decade due to root damage and bring the library back to the original number lining the front sidewalk. Email to sign up to participate. In case of heavy rain an alternative date will be announced. Tree Planting Leaders will be assigned to all volunteers to model proper planting methods, and the Northampton DPW Tree Crew and Tree Warden Richard Parasiliti will be on site providing support, tools, safety vests, watering trucks, mulch and, of course, trees. Please join us in this utterly satisfying volunteer work whose benefits will long out live all of us!
