The Suffield Tree Committee is excited to launch the “Trees for Suffield Initiative.” Members of the committee, along with Town representatives, principals from Land Canvas Landscape Architects and members of the Suffield Garden Club have been meeting since last September to develop a long-term sustainable tree replenishment program for Historic Main Street and the Town Greens. As part of our planning, we’re raising funds to plant trees this year and in future years. By donating to our fundraising effort, you can make it happen.
So how do we start? With a series of free public events throughout 2022 to celebrate trees and increase awareness of all the benefits they provide. There will be many opportunities for you to participate from now to December. If you missed our first event, a tree planting and sapling tree giveaway for Arbor Day, you’ll have other chances to participate. Next month, we’ll kick off the Trees of Suffield photo contest for kids and adults. We’re also planning speaker programs, a guided tree walk and opportunities for creative writers.
Our Main Street sidewalks and Town Greens bring our community together and help improve our collective well-being. Trees enhance that experience. Trees clean the air and beautify the space while providing oxygen. Trees provide a canopy, a habitat for wildlife and shade for runners and walkers of all ages. Trees increase property values, help us maintain our Scenic Road designation and slow traffic.
Visit the Trees for Suffield booth at the upcoming May Market, the Suffield Farmer’s Market and Suffield on the Green to learn more, sponsor a tree and join others in the community who want to keep Suffield green for future generations.
Donating counts at any level. Donate to the Trees For Suffield Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and spread the word to friends and family that you are helping. Thank you for your support!
