Fairfield Museum to host program on trees

April 15, 2019

FAIRFIELD — From 1 to 4 p.m. April 28, the Fairfield Museum and History Center, 370 Beach Road, will host “Roots to Branches and Why Trees Matter.”

Celebrate Arbor Day with an afternoon of activities that focus on the importance of trees in the community. Learn about the history of Connecticut’s forests, the return of the American chestnut and community re-landscaping projects. Participants can also take a tree ID walk or plant a tree and get information about the Fairfield Tree Planting Program.

This program is sponsored by the Fairfield Forestry Committee, which promotes stewardship of town trees and assists the town tree warden with implementing the town’s Community Forest Management Plan. The committee promotes awareness and appreciation for the environmental, economic and cultural value of trees in Fairfield.
