Town seeks tree lovers
The town of Burrillville acquired 16 free trees from the RI Tree Council, a non-profit citizens group dedicated to improving Rhode Island’s tree resources. The Recreation Department along with the Conservation Commission and the Lion’s Club planted all 16 trees in June. Eight trees were planted at Tarkiln Park, five at Hero Park, three at Steere Farm School and six at Bleweis Park.
According to a release from the department, the trees are tiny, but will someday provide some much needed shade at these locations. Ideally they need to be watered every day. If you are interested in helping water the trees contact Andrea Hall at the Parks and Recreation Department at 568-9470 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
