‘One does not plant a tree for oneself; one plants it for posterity’ – Alexander Smith

March 24, 2009

[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a seminar about the “Benefit of Trees in Communities” on Wednesday, April 1st at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Building. 

The seminar will cover “right tree, right place” and the social, communal, environmental and economic benefits of trees.  In order to properly plant trees, it is necessary to understand the characteristics of planting sites, the tolerances and growth characteristics of tree species, and the benefits one wants to receive from the trees.

Topics include: how to use trees on main streets, in parks, for flood mitigation, to screen eyesores or enhance views, as well as design themes on how to create a sense of place, security and comfort.  The seminar will cover the ornamental benefits of trees such as fall color, showy flowers, fruit and bark.

Space is limited, pre-registration is requested.  Refreshments will be available.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.  Sponsorships have been provided by WSUL/WVOS for Category A projects and by Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102 for Category B projects.
