To the Editor:

My sincere thanks to Chatham Borough Department of Public Works, and everyone who came out and planted at Shepard Kollock trail this past Saturday! It was amazing to have so many volunteers on hand to plant trees and shrubs. Whether you could only stay for a short time, or if you stayed with us until the very end – everyone’s hard work truly made a difference.

One of the reasons we have beautiful, mature trees in our town is due to Borough residents of prior generations, who clearly recognized the value and importance of trees. Each and every one of you who came and planted on Saturday embraced the Borough’s long history of stewardship, and your efforts at Shepard Kollock will help to continue that legacy, for the benefit of future generations to enjoy.

Thank you for taking the time to give back to Chatham!
With gratitude,
Colleen Truppo
Chair, Chatham Borough Shade Tree Commission
