Trees in our Midst!
Brookline Mothers Out Front donated a copy of A Forest in the City to every children’s library and a little library in town. This beautifully illustrated book traces the history of trees and how the growth of cities led to the creation of parks like the Muddy River and others in Brookline. It describes the challenges of keeping trees in cities and what we can do to make sure our urban forest survives and thrives. The Town of Brookline offers its property owners a free tree through Brookline’s Front Yard Tree Planting Program. The book plate at the front of the book tells interested students and their families about the program – and how to find out if their home qualifies for a free tree in their own yard. Look for it now!
