Town celebrates Earth Day with annual free tree seedling, mulch, and compost event

Supervisor’s “Greening Brookhaven” Program has goal of 10,000 trees planted by 2020

In celebration of Earth Day (April 22), the Town held its annual “Free Tree Seedling, Mulch, and Compost Giveaway” on April 20 at Town Hall as part of Supervisor Ed Romaine’s “Greening Brookhaven” initiative.

Pictured (left to right behind the table) are Supervisor Ed Romaine; Councilmen Michael Loguercio, Neil Foley and Kevin LaValle; and Councilwoman Jane Bonner with residents who came by to pick up their tree seedlings.

The goal of the initiative is to distribute and plant 10,000 tree seedlings by 2020, the same goal date for the Green Energy and Sustainability initiative for Town facilities. The free mulch and compost will continue to be available at various Town locations while supplies last. Mulch and compost is not bagged, so residents must provide their own containers and load the materials themselves into their vehicles.
