The city is aiming to do extensive planting of street trees this year. If you'd like a street tree, please contact the agency that is managing the program: the Urban Resources Initiative, 195 Prospect Street, phone 203 432-6570. Website is www.yale.edu/uri
; Yale's forestry school administers the Urban Resources Initiative. URI will send someone to your home to advise on what species of tree would be appropriate. URI supplies the tree and supervises a crew of young people who do the planting. All you have to do is keep the tree watered for the next several months so that it gets established. It's a terrific program. Director of the program is Colleen Murphy-Dunning. The office is in a building at the corner of Prospect and Edwards Streets.
Please participate if there's room for a street tree at the front of your property.
