Every year Townscape identifies locations around the Village to plant trees. Townscape then selects appropriate varieties, purchases, plants and maintains the trees. The money for this activity comes primarily from an annual end of the year fund drive. Donations are also made by community members for trees honoring someone special in the community or as a memorial for a deceased family member. One of Townscape’s projects for 2014 is to provide bronze plaques for the trees which identify the species of trees, specific donors and dedications.
In 2014 Townscape hopes to work with the Village to develop a master plan so future tree plantings can focus on specific areas and complete a design concept which will enhance the visual integrity of the Village.
