One of the great things about owning a home in Yellow Springs, Ohio, is that the community is committed to conservation of natural resources and preserving the beauty of the village and the surrounding area.
One of the organizations that is making a difference in the village of Yellow Springs is the Yellow Springs Tree Committee. The committee was formed to preserve the urban forests of the community by taking care of the existing trees and planting new ones throughout the village and parks. In 2016, YSTC planted 46 trees in various locations around Yellow Springs, including Ellis Park, the Bike Trail, Bryan Center, Duncan Park, and Mill's Lawn School.
The Yellow Springs Tree Committee is offering a free tree giveaway this spring. The tree giveaway will be on April 29 and will be held at the Corner Cone in Yellow Springs. The group is offering 50 dogwoods and 50 hornbeams free of charge.
If you would like to get involved with the tree committee activities, make a donation, or purchase a tribute tree, contact the Yellow Springs Tree Committee through their webpage.
