Village Tree Planting
Over the years the KVIS has planted many trees in Kenmore. One year after the Surprise October Storm, we planted over one hundred trees. We've planted trees on Village streets and in Mang Park. Each time we do this volunteers gather with shovels and rakes and are instructed about positioning the trees, adding the fertilizer, etc. to give the trees the best chance of thriving.
Many thanks to Pat and Rich Dowling, Superintendent of the DPW, Andy Mang, Park Supervisor of Maintenance, Rich Ford, and to Re-Tree WNY for their assistance with the greening of Kenmore. The KVIS hopes that everyone will enjoy the shade and protection the trees will provide for many years to come.
"I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines." ~Henry David Thoreau
"It has been said that trees are imperfect men, and seem to bemoan their imprisonment rooted in the ground. But they never seem so to me. I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!" ~John Muir
