SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE DONATES PIN OAK TREES FOR ARBOR DAY

Great Photo Opportunities

May 14, 2007

[FERNDALE] – In celebration of Arbor Day, Sullivan Renaissance is distributing 60 northern pin oak trees and tree care kits to Renaissance communities and school projects throughout Sullivan County during the month of May. 

 

Communities will incorporate the trees as part of their 2007 projects.  The school trees are being planted with the assistance of Sullivan County BOCES natural resources students and educator Robert Hayes, who also prepared the care kits to accompany the trees. 

 

Renaissance community projects are located throughout Sullivan County, including: 46 community projects, 10 school projects, 15 mini-grants.  Municipal clean-up and seasonal demonstration projects are still to be awarded.

 

The northern pin oak trees were made available to communities in Barryville, Bloomingburg, Callicoon, Forestburgh, Fremont, Hasbrouck, Highland, Hurleyville, Jeffersonville, Kauneonga Lake, Liberty, Livingston Manor, Long Eddy, Lumberland, Mamakating, Monticello, Mountaindale, Narrowsburg, Neversink, North Branch, Rock Hill, Roscoe, Smallwood, South Fallsburg, Swan Lake, Woodbourne, Woodridge, Wurtsboro and Youngsville.

 

“In the spirit of Arbor Day and environmental awareness, Sullivan Renaissance is delighted to present our participants with these northern pin oak trees.  They are given with our appreciation for the communities’ on-going commitment to the beautification of Sullivan County,” said Steering Committee Chair Sandra Gerry.

 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Beaverkill Foundation and the Gerry Foundation.  Youth participation is supported in part with a grant from the Louis R. Cappelli Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.

‘It is my Arbor Day wish that we care passionately about our communities.  That we build green and graceful cities.  That we no longer build and neglect and abandon and move on.  But that we first care for where we are.  That we rebuild and restore, plant and replant.  That we make gardens of our cities.’

 

John Rosenow, President, Arbor Day Foundation
