Thanks to Habitat for Humanity, Mayor Elliott, and the Lowell Leaders in Stewardship who helped the Trust celebrate Earth Day and Arbor day by planting a tree at new Habitat for Humanity home in the Acre! LPCT donated the tree through funds provided by the City of Lowell’s Community Development Block Grant Program.
Lowell is designated as a Tree City USA; LPCT partners with the City of Lowell to plant 100-150 trees per year throughout the city. The Tree City USA® program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs in thousands of towns and cities across America.
