WEST HAVEN, Oct. 19, 2022 — (Pictured): West Haven “tree tenders” gather in the shade of their newly planted red maple in West Shore’s Brennan Field Park on Saturday, Oct. 15.

The tree was planted near the park’s basketball court at Highland Avenue and Arlington Street as part of the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s Urban Forest Equity Grant award.

The hole was dug by a Department of Public Works crew to give the roots the best chance to grow, said Tree Warden Leo Kelly, who oversees the volunteer group of about 30 tree tenders.

The group will plant more trees next spring.
