SCHENECTADY To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Arbor Day and 20 years of Tree City USA recognition in the City of Schenectady by the Arbor Day Foundation, ReTree Schenectady volunteers and Schenectady DPW workers planted three elm trees in the Mont Pleasant neighborhood at Michigan Avenue Park Friday.

The City of Schenectady was recently awarded an Urban and Community Forestry grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for a city-wide tree inventory and community forest management plan to assist in improving the urban forest with comprehensive planning to identify and assess existing trees along with future planting sites.
