Keeping Hudson Shady

Gossips is preempting the official press release about this, but tonight, at the meeting of the Conservation Advisory Council, it was revealed that the CAC has been awarded a grant from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation for "about $49,000" to plant trees on Harry Howard Avenue along the Empire State Trail.

It is anticipated that the DEC grant will fund the planting of 75 trees. The grants announced previously from National Grid and Partners for Climate Action Hudson Valley will finance the planting of 34 street trees, and money allocated for trees in the 2023 city budget will pay for another 15 trees. All together, that's a total of 124 new trees to be planted in Hudson in 2023. This will definitely be the Year of the Trees in Hudson.


  1. This is exciting news. Thank you, CAC! The bike path is pretty busy during the week with students and on the weekend with joggers and bicyclists. The new street trees will provide shade, wind and rain protection for all.

  2. Good or the CAC. They'll miss Hillary but lets hope that the good work will continue.

  3. Hudson remains shady in many other ways...
