One of my concerns about putting in turf fields is that they will result in less of a positive benefit in terms of pollution absorption, esp at Glover which is right next to the hutch. I know grass isn’t tress but can you please comment on this? Are our kids who are huffing and puffing on these fields worse off because of the turf as opposed to grass?

Trees are expensive. What do you say to people who say they can’t afford to replace a large tree that may have to come down.

Has Pelham conducted a tree inventory?
Peter McCartt
01:13:08
A tree inventory is a great BSA Eagle Scout or GSA Gold or Silver Award project.

I have often thought about that when I walk the increasingly treeless streets. but just look at peoples cars or the mountains of Amazon cartons on doorsteps or on recycling days and you come to the conclusion that the $50-300 to plant a tree is perfectly financially possible. At worse. it’s a trade-off between that tree or those six bottles of wine or new lounge chair. ...

Can Pelham village plant more street trees? it seems like there is lots of street tree space open for planting.

Pelham used to have a program where homeowners could buy trees through the town? Could we start that again?

When Street trees have been planted, are directions being given to the residents on how to care for the trees planted in front of their houses?
Anna Riehl
01:31:03
we can post it on EcoPEl website

if you can compile

it seems that trees being dedicated are beloved. how about a new homeowner program where they dedicate trees to their family members as they move in. realtors could sponsor that program.

The chances of your tree surviving will increase dramatically by merely digging a square hole instead of a round one when you plant the sapling. The roots won't develop a circular root system because, as systematic planting trials have shown, the roots are not good at growing around corners.
