OSWEGO COUNTY – Trees are an important part of the ecosystem. They clean the air and water, provide shade and regulate temperature. Trees reduce flooding, conserve energy and beautify streets. They provide food and house birds and other valued animals. Trees help people heal – physically and mentally. The list goes on.

To help bring all of these benefits to local communities, Atlantic States Legal Foundation (ASLF) – a longtime advocate for urban tree planting in Central New York – is working with the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning (CDTP) to look for new tree planting sites and partners.
