2022 Arbor Day Celebration

The Village of Baldwinsville has been designated a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for
the 36th consecutive year. This year trees were planted by the Public Works Department employees
along Albert Palmer Lane to continue the process of replacing ash trees that were removed due to the
Emerald Ash Borer infestation. John Graham, NYS DEC Forester and Louise Corrigan DPW Clerk
are pictured in front of one of those trees to commemorate Arbor Day 2022 which the village
celebrated on October 13, 2022.
