A Successful Year for the Essex Tree Committee

Red cedar

One of 33 Eastern Red Cedars planted at the West Avenue gateway

In 2015 the Essex Tree Committee received donations of 40 trees from both individuals and community organizations.  Thirty three of these trees were Eastern Red Cedars planted at the West Avenue gateway (see photo).  These were donated by the Essex Foundation and the Essex Fire Department.  Other trees included a Swamp White Oak tree located at the Methodist Hill donated by the Essex Police Union.  Two Princeton Elm trees, donated privately were planted at West Avenue and South Main Street.  A Sunset Red Maple donated by the Essex Rotary Club was planted also at South Main Street.  The Essex Garden Club donated a London Plane, planted at 15 Dennison Road. The Essex Tree Committee donated a Saucer Magnolia to the Essex Elementary School.  And Bartlett Tree Experts planted a Red Sunset Maple at 147 Dennison Road.

Augie Pampel, Essex Tree Warden, thanks all who donated trees to the town of Essex in 2015.  These trees will enhance the beauty of the streets of Essex for many years to come.
