Earlier this month, Gossips reported on a grand plan to plant twelve trees on Arbor Day in Hudson this year, on Fifth Street and Sixth Street. As it turns out, there are "underground conflicts" preventing trees from being planted in the chosen locations, so the Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) is back to planting only the five trees that have been donated, a donation that was facilitated by Hudson Development Corporation.
Hilary Hillman of the CAC reported at the HDC meeting on Tuesday that they were still seeking locations for planting the trees. She mentioned that one would be planted somewhere on Union Street, another on North Fifth Street, and another in the 200 block of Columbia Street. That leaves a two more sites still to be identified.
Arbor Day in Hudson takes place this year on Sunday, October 2. The CAC is recruiting volunteers to help plant the trees. Those interested in helping with the tree planting are asked to gather at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 2, in Seventh Street Park.
