Community Tree Sale
Bedford 2030 is thrilled to be partnering with Branch Out! to host a tree sale for our community!
We have a wide variety of tree saplings that have been lovingly grown in 5 gallon containers and cared for throughout the summer, and they are now ready to get in the ground!
Households can purchase up to two trees through this sale. Please click here for tree planting instructions.
Why are we hosting a community-wide tree sale? Trees bring a number of incredible benefits, including:
- Beauty and benefits to mental health
- Carbon storage — through photosynthesis, trees take carbon out of the atmosphere and store it underground. This is a critical climate action
- Improved air quality
- Animal habitat & resources
- Shade — an important factor in improving resilience to climate change-related heat events and reducing energy usage
- Reduced soil erosion
- Increased water storage and water filtration
- And even more!
Payment will be collected and trees will be distributed on Sunday September 26th at the Bedford Hills Train Station from 12:00pm-3:00pm (during our Clean Ride and Drive Expo). Trees will be $20.00 each. Please click here for tree planting instructions.
It is also important to note that while each sapling distributed is in good health, Bedford 2030 and Branch Out! cannot guarantee the success or appearance of any planted sapling.
Branch Out! is a tree planting project initiated and funded by the Bedford Garden Club to celebrate 100 years of civic commitment to Bedford. The mission of Branch Out! is to restore, enhance and protect the trees of the Town of Bedford, New York and to promote the ecological health and biodiversity of our town’s tree canopy.
