Boy, does the city of New Haven have a deal for you! If you’ve got a piece of sidewalk, or even a teeny tiny patch of dirt, the Urban Resources Initiative will give you one. They’ll even install it for you.
City officials have been trying to make the Elm City more green for years, and they think this program will help out. Colleen Murphy-Dunning, director of the Urban Resources Initiative says “It’s really important because it brings down air temperatures, it improves air quality, and it brings shade and beauty for our residents, it really improves the quality of our environment in general.”
You can even pick what kind of tree you want in front of your business or home! The fall planting season starts in a couple of weeks, so you can get your free tree by calling 203-432-6189
