Amherst Neighborhood Tree Stewards Program (ANTS) Each year we seek one neighborhood interested in working together to plant new shade trees. Participants work with us to select, plant, water, mulch and learn how best to care for young trees. In our first year with this program, 2012, we chose Woodside Ave. and planted 14 new public shade trees. In 2013, we picked the Blue Hills Road neighborhood. 2014 saw us planting 10 new trees along Fisher and Harris Streets with loads of help from the neighborhood. In 2015, we selected Potwine Lane and planted 18 trees! We took 2016 off but in 2017, we planted along Stanley Street and Tamarack Lane.
We invite you and your neighborhood to apply for the next ANTS Project. You can fill out a form here. For more info, please contact us.
