WESTBOROUGH – The Tree Division of the Department of Public Works is planning to celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, April 28.

The division will plant an ornamental tree at the recently complete isle overlooking Lake Chauncy, on the former State Hospital property off Dr. Solomon Carter Fuller Way, at 1 p.m.

Also, the town and Tree Warden Kyle Grendell are kicking off their annual “Adopt-a-Tree” program to make town streets greener and more beautiful. 

By planting new trees along town roads, critical habitats for birds and woodland creatures will be restored.

The Department of Public Works will plant a tree on your property in the setback 20 feet from the road or back of the sidewalk. You agree to maintain that tree.

Choose a tree that is available and of appropriate height, including scarlet fire dogwood [20-25 feet], ruby slipper amur maple [20-25 feet], kwanzan cherry [30-40 feet] and chestnut, among others.
