Dear LGC Member and Neighbors,
“Rooting for Lewisboro” has distributed 5,880 seedlings to Lewisboro residents since the program began in 2021. This year, we have selected 31 species of native trees and shrubs, for a total of 2,880, from the Saratoga Tree Nursery to beautify Lewisboro and increase the number of native trees and shrubs in our community.
Cost to you:  The non-profit, One Tree Planted, which funded the program for the past 3 years, was not able to provide a grant this year so we are asking for your support in covering our costs.  (Pay What You Wish - Suggested Donation - $1 per Seedling). 
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. You can also plant them in buckets for the summer to allow them to grow a bit before being planted in the fall. Planting and educational materials are available at the top of this page. 
Before placing your order, learn about the 31 varieties of seedlings offered this year by using the Tree and Shrub Information and Wildlife Value Button and then use the Online Order Form to place your order. 
If you have any questions please contact Mary Ann Lansdale at malansdale@gmail.com or use the LGC Contact Us button.
Trees and shrubs are critical for our wildlife, air and water quality and the reduction of storm water runoff to our lakes, streams and reservoirs. We hope that you will join our effort and plant some native trees and shrubs this spring. This year it is especially important because our area faces the decline of our beech trees from Beech Leaf Disease. More information about BLD is available at www.teatown.org/bld/.  The Lewisboro Garden Club values the many open spaces and preserves in our town and we are working towards an even greener future for our pollinators, our abundant wildlife and our community.
Help the Earth. Make a Memory.  Plant for the Future.
We ask that you spread the word and forward this letter to your neighbors.  
Thank you for Rooting for Lewisboro!
