SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE DONATES TREES

‘Trees give us two of the most crucial elements for our survival: oxygen and books.’ – A. Whitney Brown

May 11, 2006

 

 

[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance is donating six-foot pin oak trees to communities and schools throughout Sullivan County during the month of May.  This is the third year that Sullivan Renaissance has observed Arbor Day with the distribution of trees.  Communities will incorporate the foliage as part of their 2006 Renaissance projects.  The trees are being planted during the program season which runs through August.

 

Renaissance community projects are located in all 15 towns and 6 villages of Sullivan County.  These include: 43 community projects, 14 school projects, 11 mini-grants and three municipal clean-up projects.  Two seasonal community projects are still to be awarded.

 

The trees were made available to communities in Barryville, Bethel, Bloomingburg, Callicoon, Cochecton Center, Eldred, Fallsburg, Forestburgh, Hasbrouck, Highland, Hurleyville, Jeffersonville, Liberty, Livingston Manor, Long Eddy, Lumberland, Mamakating, Monticello, Mountaindale, Narrowsburg, Neversink, North Branch, Phillipsport, Rock Hill, Roscoe, Smallwood, South Fallsburg, Swan Lake, White Sulphur Springs, Woodbourne, Woodridge, Wurtsboro and Youngsville.                     

 

“Sullivan Renaissance is delighted to offer pin oak trees to Sullivan Renaissance projects.  And we are pleased to be working with Robert Hayes and his BOCES students, who are helping the groups to plant these trees,” said Colleen Emery, Sullivan Renaissance Project Coordinator.

 

The mission of Sullivan Renaissance is to enhance the appearance of Sullivan County, while building a sense of pride and spirit in the community.  Sullivan Renaissance is a project of the Beaverkill Foundation with support from the Gerry Foundation.
