Trees for Arbor Day:

[FERNDALE] – In celebration of Arbor Day, Sullivan Renaissance will distribute eight-foot Crimson King Maple Trees to Renaissance communities throughout Sullivan County.  Communities will begin to plant them on Arbor Day, April 29, and continue through the month of May.
 
Renaissance projects are located in 42 communities in all 15 towns and 6 villages of Sullivan County.  The trees were made available to communities in Barryville, Bethel, Bloomingburg, Callicoon, Cochecton Center, Fallsburg, Forestburgh, Harris, Hasbrouck, Hortonville, Hurleyville, Jeffersonville, Liberty, Livingston Manor, Long Eddy, Lumberland, Monticello, Mountaindale, Narrowsburg, Neversink, North Branch, Parksville, Rock Hill, Roscoe, Smallwood, Swan Lake, Tennanah Lake, White Sulphur Springs, Woodbourne, Woodridge, Wurtsboro and Youngsville.  
 
“In the spirit of Arbor Day and environmental awareness, Sullivan Renaissance is delighted to present the Crimson King Maple Tree to all Sullivan Renaissance groups.  They are given with our appreciation for the communities’ on-going commitment to the beautification of Sullivan County,” said Steering Committee Chair Sandra Gerry.
 
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.
