The Stockade Association’s infrastructure and tree-scape mavens invited two certified arborists, Jeff Kehoe and Clarence Fountain, to present a workshop on proper trimming of street trees this morning, Saturday, July 27, 2019. Starting at St. George’s Church, the group visited trees and learned lessons on North Ferry Street, and spilled around the corner at both Green Street and Union Street. I got to hand around and tag along to snap some photos. Since I was not taking notes, I hope the Association will post a summary of the useful information we were given. Many thanks to Clarence and Jeff for sharing their Saturday morning with us.

  • As a long-time believer that “Schenectady needs a Tree Preservation Policy”, and the Stockade needs it even more urgently, I am pleased that the Stockade Association supports efforts to assure that our older and newer trees are properly maintained, so that they may thrive and last as long as possible.
