On Wednesday, October 12th, volunteers from Verizon Wireless joined Regreen Springfield and the City of Springfield Forestry Division in planting new trees at Harriett Tubman Park, in the Old Hill Neighborhood of the city. The new trees, paid for through a grant from the National Arbor Day Foundation and CSX Railroad replaced trees lost in the 2011 tornado which destroyed all of the existing trees in the Park. Tubman Park is located on Hickory Street, along the Mill River, and the new trees will help to reduced water runoff and erosion, and also filter the water that flows through the Park into the river.
The new trees include Hickory, Crabapple, Red Maple, Sugar Maple and Black Locust. Regreen Springfield will be preparing an i-Tree report on the project benefits, in partnership with the Alliance for Community Trees. In addition to volunteers from Verizon Wireless, students from the University of Massachusetts assisted in the planting effort.
