Watertown Daily Times Sackets Harbor offering four kinds of trees for sale as part of fundraiser:
Northern red oaks, swamp white oaks, Eastern redbuds and sugar maples will start to help shade and beautify the village as soon as the ground thaws.
The village tree committee has launched a tree fundraiser in an effort to build up the committee's fund balance and is offering for sale a selection of four different kinds of trees.
'Anyone can buy the trees,' said Kelly E. Reinhardt, chairwoman of the committee. 'The trees are easy to plant and will reach the height of surrounding trees quickly. The trees are good for maintaining temperature in the summer and they can increase property value.'
In previous years, the committee has planted trees in the village-owned margins of residents' front yards, free of charge, for people who requested them, she said.
