The City of New Rochelle observed Arbor Day by planting an oak tree at D'Onofrio Park, joined by fifth grade students from Jefferson School. New Rochelle is celebrating 30 years as a Tree City. The ceremony featured Deputy Mayor Sara Kaye, joined by Deputy City Manager Kathleen Gill, Development Commissioner Adam Salgado, Planning and Sustainability Director Kevin Kain, Sustainability Coordinator Nick Sioufas, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Vin Parise, Forester Paul Rebholz, and Jefferson School Principal Kim Nieves and fifth grade teacher Victoria Cooke.
"Trees provide so many benefits to us, and every year we lose hundreds of trees in New Rochelle to age, disease, development, and extreme weather- which is why it's so important that we replace them," Deputy Mayor Sara Kaye told the class.
In addition to recognition as a Tree City for three decades, New Rochelle also received a "Growth Award" from the Arbor Day Foundation for environmental prowess including:
