NORWALK, Conn. -- Dan Landau has been re-elected to his fourth one-year term as president of the Norwalk Tree Alliance.
The Norwalk Tree Alliance is a nonprofit association of volunteers committed to advancing Norwalk’s urban tree canopy and elevating public recognition of trees as a resource enriching the quality of life.
Also re-elected at the NTA’s annual meeting were Vice President Bill Levin, Secretary Judith Rudikoff and acting Treasurer Christine Names. Added to the board of directors were Anatoly Sarser and Hal Alvord.
Landau’s report at the meeting covering 2015 activities noted that the NTA is working with the Third Taxing District and a $2,000 grant to plant 20 oak and maple street trees in East Norwalk.
Tree identification signs were installed at Cranbury Park and the Town Green, trees were identified on Sheffield Island and signs are expected to be completed in the spring at Rosa Parks Arboretum behind Columbus School.
At the NTA’s Tree Farm in Fodor Farm, the tree inventory was expanded and additional fencing was put up to prevent animals from attacking the growing trees.
A tree planting is scheduled for Marvin School April 29, 2016 in a continuation of the NTA’s Arbor Day rotation of tree plantings at schools.
