Scarsdale employees dug holes and planted trees around the village Monday to replace those that were damaged during the many winter and spring storms.
Duane Downey, Tim Minogue and Steve Giorgio, were hard at work planting trees on village right-aways, the land from the street curb to a residence. The village replaces damaged trees in village right-aways and plants new trees for residents who have placed a request for one on what the village calls a wish list.
Matse Jenkins, an administrative assistant of the Village of Scarsdale public works department , said this year the village is planting more trees than ever.
Considering the last couple of storms, we had a backlog, said Jenkins. We are trying to eradicate the list.
Jenkins said the village is planting more than 200 trees this year.
To report a damaged tree in a village right away or to put your name on the wish list, which Jenkins says is one year long, call the public works department at (914) 722-1150.
How long has your name been on the tree "wish list"? Please leave comments below.
