Planting a white oak at City Hall

Thank you to the teachers and students of the New Rochelle Children’s Center for Learning, who joined me this morning at City Hall to plant a white oak tree as part of our annual Arbor Day observance. (Okay – technically Arbor Day was last Friday, but bad weather pushed the event to today.)

Trees add beauty to our neighborhoods, even as they improve our environment and property values.  That’s why New Rochelle is committed to planting hundreds of new trees every year. We encourage property owners to sign up for their own free saplings. Visit the City website to learn more.
