Mt Tabor has been made greener in 2016 with the planting of six young trees in 2016, under the direction of the Tree Committee, an ad hoc committee of the CMA. Look for the new plantings in Main Park, Trinity Park, Scott Place Park, and Country Club Lane, where two sturdy young maples have been planted to restore the historic maple allee, an intentional planting along the road leading to the Mt. Tabor Country Club. The allee area was near the Victory Gardens during World War 11. Prior to that, the area was described as a shady "pleasure grove" near the original club house. One more maple is needed to complete the restoration of the allee on the south west side and more will be needed as the old trees need to be replaced.
Many thanks to those residents and organizations who have donated to the Mount Tabor Tree Restoration Fund. To keep the impetus going, please consider donating to the fund in recognition or commemoration of an individual or event. A donation of $275 is appropriate to dedicate a tree; however, any amount is most welcome as an addition to the general fund. In the same way that small acorns produce mighty oaks, small donations can, when added up, produce a tree to grace our hill. Information and donation forms are available in the CMA office or contact Pat Rolston at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-723-7763.
