To the Editor:

The Canton Village Tree Committee is seeking new members to help us with the task of replacing street trees lost to construction or storm damage in the past year, and planting trees in new locations along our streets and highways and in our parks and other public places.

The Tree Committee is a small group of volunteers who works with the Village government, public highway and transportation departments, and private property owners to promote proper tree planting and maintenance.

Our overall aim is to enhance the village appearance and climate with year ‘round natural beauty, clean air and summer shade, and food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. The Committee usually holds monthly meetings at which tree planting and maintenance projects are discussed and decided. It is interesting and rewarding work, the results of which we see and enjoy every day.

Anyone interested in becoming a part of our committee should contact us at 386-4700 extension 2, or, attend our next meeting scheduled for

Thursday, November 8 at 4:30pm in the Canton Municipal Building located at 60 Main Street.

The Canton Village Tree Committee
