Community Engagement

The Committee conducts an annual Arbor Day celebration at the Lanesborough Elementary School with the 3rd grade class.  Arbor Day has evolved to be an all-day event that is incorporated into the 3rd grade curriculum by the teachers and includes an interpretive hike on the Bradley Trail from the Mount Greylock visitor center.

As part of the Lanesborough 250th Anniversary celebration in 2015 the Tree and Forest Committee planted many different tree species along the walking path at Laston Park to serve as an arboretum for future generations of Lanesborough families to enjoy. Many of the trees were donated. Each tree has a plaque to identify the species and who donated the tree.We continue to accept tree donations to expand the arboretum.Please contact a committee member.
