Letter: Trees for Cold Spring

I want to share the wonderful news that a Trees for Life, Trees for Cold Spring campaign to raise money to plant trees in the village topped $3,000, with donations ranging from $5 to $500.

The community support for this has been incredible and creative: Ascend Yoga held a yoga class in which the proceeds went to the trees. Several children donated money they had raised hosting lemonade stands.

The village’s Tree Advisory Board will purchase the trees and select where they will be planted. We are hoping volunteers can help with the planting, which will take place in November.

Hooray for the trees!
