The town of Reading will continue its “Taking Root for the Future” shade tree planting program this spring. The tree planting program offers an opportunity for you to help beautify Reading and recognize a person or event with the planting of a shade tree.
Sponsorship contributions of $300 will pay for the tree, it’s planting and care, as well as a plate on the commemorative plaque displayed in the Town Hall. Please note that the planting location for an individual tree cannot be specified. Acknowledgement of sponsorship will be through the town plaque and the website.
Any person, business, group or organization may sponsor a tree and be recognized on the Town’s commemorative plaque located in the Town Hall and on the Town of Reading website. Births, graduations, weddings, donations in memory of a loved one, or acknowledging a business, group or organization are many of the moments and memories that can be commemorated through the donation of a shade tree.
Reading’s publicly owned trees are a capital asset and are as important as our streets, sidewalks, public buildings, and recreational facilities. In addition to the advantage of sponsorship, the community will enjoy the numerous benefits of the trees for generations to come.
For more information, or to sponsor a tree, contact the Public Works Department at (781)942-9077.
