Our Story

This group was first organized in 1999 by citizens of Pelham. The goals back then were to work with the Town council of the day to create a guideline on the Urban Forest and to save our tree canopy on the street of Emmett. Today we find the trees still under valued by the public, the town and developments. We are determined to make a change in society.
