The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.
Dear LGC Member and Neighbors,
Our Garden Club is initiating a new tree program this year, “Rooting for Lewisboro”. We have picked out 14 species of native trees and shrubs from the Saratoga Tree Nursery (part of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation), to beautify Lewisboro but more importantly, to increase the number of native trees and shrubs in our community.
There is no cost to you. The trees and shrubs are bare root seedlings, and will be approximately 5-14” tall. They will arrive in late April and should be planted as soon as possible. Planting and educational materials will be provided with the seedlings by the Lewisboro Garden Club and can be found here on the web site.
Please limit your choice to a maximum of 3 per species. You may cut and paste the order form into an email or simply list the number and names of the trees and shrubs that you would like in an email.
Please send all orders to Mary Ann Lansdale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a limited amount of some species, so please order early to be sure you get your requests. Orders received after March 20th may have substitutions with other seedlings, but we will contact you prior to substitutions. You can also order directly, for a very reasonable price, from The Saratoga Tree Nursery, and find additional species that are available. Full descriptions and photos about the seedlings and additional species can be found in the 2021 Sale Catalog.
As a way to give back to the Town of Lewisboro, the Garden Club will also be donating a more mature native tree to be planted on town property. The Lewisboro Garden Club values the many open spaces and preserves in town and we are working towards an even greener future for our pollinators, our abundant wildlife and our community.
Trees and shrubs are critical for our wildlife, air and water quality and the reduction of storm water runoff for our lakes, streams and reservoirs. We hope that you will join our effort and plant some native trees and shrubs this spring.
Help the Earth. Make a Memory. Plant for the Future.
We ask that you spread the word and forward this email to your friends and neighbors.
Thank you for Rooting for Lewisboro!
