The single biggest group of trees to be planted on the Green in memory, the Sullivan family donation was given in recognition of the Baker family’s seven decades of continued excellence in the nursery industry throughout the U.S. and their unwavering commitment to the Suffield community itself.

In addition to donating the trees and orchestrating their planting, Kevin gave a lively and informative talk on the hows and whys of tree planting before giving instruction to Suffield high school student volunteers from teacher Kyle McCollough’s civics class.
