"Friendship is a sheltering
Samuel Taylor Coleridge c. 1830
of County Street, south from Clinton Street,
in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
As we can see from this historic streetscape, trees add a majesty
and grace to the outstanding architecture for which New Bedford
is known. We all recognize the intrinsic value of 100-year-old
elms and oaks and how they improve the quality of our lives.
There is no greater expression of hope for the future
than the planting of a tree.
You will become a friend to future generations in the city with
the gift of a tree. The cost of a tree is $225.
