Tree Replanting Program Featured at West Hartford Home and Garden Show 
    5/12/16 -   Trout Brook Landscaping of West Hartford is jump-starting a planting effort with the assistance of a number of sponsors by giving away trees at the West Hartford Home, Garden & Lifestyle Show on Saturday May 14th, 10am-4pm in the Raymour & Flanigan parking lot at 490 New Park Avenue.   The show is hosted by the West Hartford Home Design District.
      Residents can recall West Hartford’s classic, tree lined boulevards and avenues of years gone by.  The disappearance of the canopy has accelerated in the years since “Snowtober” of 2011.  Damaged trees were removed and those close to power lines were heavily pruned.  Many trees were originally planted for their fast growth and not their strength, so they have not survived.   It’s time to re-canopy our streets by planting stronger tree species that can survive storms.   
     Trees, in 7 gallon containers, will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, to West Hartford residents only, with 1 tree per West Hartford address, as verified by a picture ID.  Participants attend a 10-minute workshop on planting by an arborist.  Recipients agree to email a photo of their newly-planted tree in a street visible location.   There are 75 trees available for West Hartford residents and a number of trees were also donated directly to the Town of West Hartford, which DPW has offered to plant in the town parks!
     A small donation to a designated charity is requested from tree recipients at the Trout Brook Landscaping booth. 
     Tree donors are as follows:  Trout Brook Landscaping, The Hartford Foundation, Butler Power Equipment, Farmington Bank,  Luna Tree Care, Simply Landscaping, American Landscaping,  Gledhill Nursery
