At the same time, Galvan seems to want to cast itself as the giver of trees--trees the length of Second Street planted in 2006, only some of which survive; trees along State Street near the Armory planted last year; trees along Third Street in front of the Salvation Army building (now owned by Galvan) planted earlier this week.
Yesterday, the Galvan Foundation issued a press release announcing an expansion of their "tree planting initiative":
Galvan Foundation is pleased to announce its continued partnership with the City of Hudson and Pondside Nursery on another round of tree planting in Hudson, NY. Galvan Foundation planted 44 trees this fall and is establishing a permanent initiative to plant a sidewalk tree for any property owner in Hudson who requests one, beginning Spring 2016.
The tree planting initiative is a continued partnership between Galvan Foundation, The City of Hudson, and Pondside Nursery. The City of Hudson cuts openings in the sidewalks, and Galvan Foundation pays for the trees to be planted by Pondside Nursery, a local business. Pondside Nursery selects appropriate types of trees to ensure they thrive in an urban environment.
In prior years, Galvan Foundation, independently, and in collaboration with the City of Hudson, Operation Unite, and Pondside Nursery planted more than 100 trees. The Galvan Foundation Tree Planting Initiative is a permanent component of Galvan Foundation’s Environment Initiative.
Galvan Foundation invites every property owner to take part in making Hudson greener and healthier. Sidewalk tree requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.COPYRIGHT 2015 CAROLE OSTERINK
