Planting and Caring for Trees



The Shade Tree Commission stands ready to assist you in selecting, planting and caring for trees. We maintain a series of plant lists to guide the process.

Throughout the year, we rely on volunteers of all ages and abilities to water, mulch and prune newly-planted trees, and to tend our forests

  • Please consider "adopting" one or more trees.  We especially need help with watering until we get to cooler days.  Many hands make light work!  To volunteer, contact us at
  • In 2015 we identified forest stewardship of the Ardsley Wildlife Sanctuary as a strategic priority.   

Are you too busy to plant?  We can help.  This also makes a perfect gift!
