Tree Planting

Partnering with the Urban Resources Initiative and the City of New Haven, SCSU students planted 36 sapling trees that line Farnham Avenue in New Haven.

The trees are native species to Connecticut and include maple, oak, hawthorne, and elm, amur maakia, and zelkova. The variety of species reduces likelihood of blight, and benefits local birds and pollinators. Sustainability interns water the trees weekly during warmer months of the year.
