Replace Our Trees — Attend the Program, Sign the Petition

In recent years, the City of Middletown has lost trees at a much faster rate than the city has planted new trees. To address this issue, the Jonah Center for Earth and Art and the City of Middletown’s Urban Forestry Commission invite the public to a special meeting on Tuesday, October 15, 7-8:30 p.m. in the Middletown’s Council Chambers, 245 deKoven Drive. (See information on the petition below.)

The Jonah Center is also gathering signatures on a petition in preparation for the city’s budget hearings in the spring. We plan to ask for at least $50,000 in additional funds to support an increase in tree-planting from 20-30 trees per year to at least 100 trees per year. Read more and sign the petition here.
