Historic Southwest to see new trees along streets

September 17, 2018

The Historic Southwest Neighborhood Association will plant 25 trees on Sept. 22 along city streets.

The trees were purchased by using an Rneighbors grant, which stems from a program aimed to support various neighborhood projects in Rochester.

Historic Southwest Neighborhood Association organizers, working with the Rochester Park and Recreation Department, have reached out to homeowners to determine where the trees should be planted.

Volunteers, including local Boy Scout troops, will gather at 9 a.m. Sept. 22 at the Rochester Public Schools’ Edison Building to get assignments.

The tree planting isn’t the only opportunity through the Rneighbors program this fall.

On Oct. 13, the citywide program will hold its annual fall tree planting, with plans to plant 200 trees in the Bamber Hills neighborhood on the boulevards between 32nd and 40th streets and from Halling Place to Windsor Chase Drive.
