JOIN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD TREE PLANTING EVENTS!
GTC hosts at least one neighborhood tree planting each year. 2020's event took place on the perimeter of the Lunt ball fields. After a tree planting demo by urban foresters from MA DCR and Tree Committee members, volunteers teamed up and fanned out to plant trees, using COVID socially distant protocols. In all, 27 trees were planted. Thank you to all who participated in a wonderful and energizing community event during the pandemic! And thanks to the Greenfield DPW for watering the first-year trees!
WANT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD TO BE NEXT?
Are you and your neighbors interested in working with us to plant trees on your street? Would you like to canvass your neighbors and ask them to sign up to receive a tree? If this sounds interesting, contact:
Our 2019 volunteer tree planting was held on the south end of Birch Street and attracted lots of volunteers, including residents, town officials, DCR urban foresters and others. Thank you, volunteers, for making it a great event!
This year's socially-distant tree planting at the Lunt ball fields was a huge success! Take a bike ride along Kenwood, Davis and Norwood, and see all the new trees.

GREENFIELD RECEIVES TREE GRANT!
Great news! An ambitious project to plant about 800 trees in Greenfield over three years is being supported by a new grant from the U.S. Forest Service. The DPW's tree planting crew is working incredibly hard to meet the tree planting goals of the project and GTC continues to hold their neighborhood tree planting events to contribute to that goal. Over 200 trees were planted in 2019, and 2020 promises to be another busy tree planting year, though COVID19 is impacting the planting timeline and capacity.
To request a shade tree for your front yard or tree belt, contact the Greenfield DPW at (413) 772-1528.
