Money has been divided equally between the Saco, Maine Parks and Recreation Department, and the Portland, Maine Parks and Recreation Department.
Edmunds reported on the story...check it out here.
RESULTS: In the Portland area, four trees were planted in Payson Park, two in the Longfellow Arboretum and two in the regular park area. In Saco, 2 American Elms were planted the reforestation area of Cleveland Street. Here is a note from Joe Hirsch, Saco Parks and Rec:
We used those monies to purchase 2 very nice hybrid American Elms in our reforestation of Cleveland Street where we had to remove all the mature trees due to the wrong tree being used in the esplanade area. Unless we have a grant or in this case a donation we rarely are able to plant trees of this quality on our streets. They are the gateway trees to that street, one being located on either end. They look great and by the way thanks again for the donation. It helped us complete the project without totally killing our budget as the reforestation of the street came upon us and was not budgeted. Your companies contributions helped greatly. Thank you.
