To date, as a result of the donations, seven street trees have been planted:

  • 3 River Birches at "Central Park" (grassy area on Boston Post Rd across from Jerry's Market;
  • 1 Tulip Tree at Disbrow Park
  • 2 Two Thornless Honey Locusts in the City Hall parking lot
  • 1 Sugar Maple on the Village Green

Think Rye needs more trees? You can donate to the Tree Fund.
