NEW: An informational workshop: Adding Native Trees to Your Landscape

On Wednesday, June 11, come join the New Castle Conservation Board in the Assembly Room of Town Hall from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. for an informal informational workshop on “Adding Native Trees to Your Landscape.”  We’ll cover lots of important details about many different trees to help you narrow down which are the best options for you!  Have you lost trees over these past few years due to storms and utility line maintenance—and have you been thinking about which types of trees would be the best fit to add to your landscape?

Are you considering evergreens—or deciduous trees—or both?  Or perhaps you just feel it’s time to plant a few more beautiful trees on your property?  A large tree like a Maple?  An Oak?  Or a Tupelo or Tulip Tree?  Or maybe a smaller tree like a Serviceberry or a Hawthorn?

Are you wondering which trees do best in sun or shade, are wind resistant, or thrive in either moist or dry soil?

If so, then please join us on Wednesday evening.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about:

• Trees that are native to our area
• The benefits of planting native trees
• The attributes of a variety of trees to determine which ones are the “best fit” for your landscape

Hope to see you there!

When will the Town of New Castle file a lawsuit against Con Edison for cutting down so many trees in New Castle? When will we file suit against them not to gain a money settlement, but to a gain a Court Order that stipulates that they must strategically plant 5,000 trees throughout New Castle. Who in Town Hall is paying attention to this?
