Spring 2022 Tree Committee Update
The Rochester Tree Committee celebrated the 150th Anniversary of Arbor Day on April 29, 2022. The City of Rochester participated with activities and tree plantings at the Municipal Park to honor the role trees play in building a healthy community and beautifying the city. In addition, Rochester has been honored as a “Tree City” by Tree City USA for eight (8) consecutive years!
Rochester has prioritized trees in our community through the work of the Tree Committee, which is proud to report that it has met 30% of its tree coverage goal. Work continues on the preservation of the tree canopy for future generations.
This Spring 2022, a diverse collection of trees will be planted along Letica Drive, and a grove of Sugar Maple trees will be planted in the community garden to enhance visitor experience. Please make plans this summer to bring your family to the garden to enjoy this beautiful communal area.
