North Hempstead NY,-Councilwoman Viviana Russell and Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth welcomed Td Bank and the Arbor Day Foundation to Westbury for an Arbor Day Celebration. The town of North Hempstead was the winner of the TD Green Streets, a grant program from TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank and the Arbor Day Foundation. The $20,000 grant will fund projects throughout the Town, including increasing the tree canopy of New Cassel and hosting tree planting trainings for the community. North Hempstead officials and the Town’s tree planting crew kicked off the project on April 25 along with more than 50 students from Park Avenue elementary school by planting trees at Swalm Park in New Cassel. The Town was also recognized today as a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation for having a viable tree management plan and program.
