Help the Village of Pelham decide where to plant street trees this fall!

The Village of Pelham and the Pelham Preservation and Garden Society will be planting trees this September.  Take part in an easy survey done from your phone using Google Maps while standing in the spots you nominate for tree planting.  High school students can be awarded community service credits.

Did you know ...

 

• Having large trees in yards along streets increases a home’s value from 3 to 20 percent.  A mature tree can often have an appraised value of between $1,000 and $10,000.

 

• Nationally, street-tree spaces along city streets could translate into 33 million more tons of absorbed CO2 every year, and save $4 billion in energy costs.

 

• If you plant a tree today on the west side of your home, in 5 years your energy bills should be a3% less.  In 15 years the savings will be nearly 12%.
