Norwalk, CT 06855

April 22, 2023 is Earth Day…

and Third Taxing District is pleased to announce a free tree promotion.

Through a grant to the Norwalk Tree Alliance, TTD will be sponsoring trees at no cost to East Norwalk homeowners – for the tree and for planting it. The goal is to improve the tree canopy in East Norwalk’s neighborhoods and enhance the quality of the environment.

This year, the Norwalk Tree Alliance (NTA) is inviting you to join them in the planting process. Tree winners will be asked to meet up on April 22nd at 9:00 a.m. at Fodor Farm, 328 Flax Hill Road in Norwalk and assist the NTA with the actual planting of the trees in East Norwalk. The digging and delivery of the trees will be done ahead of time in preparation for the actual planting.

If you’re interested in a free tree to be planted on your property, please email TTD at ctenney@ttd.gov

Please include your name, home address and telephone number.

The deadline for all entries is March 17, 2023.

Winners will be chosen the following week. The Norwalk Tree Alliance will contact you if your property qualifies for a tree. You will be offered a selection of specimen trees, such as maple, Oak and Linden, or maybe a flowering tree such as a Dogwood, Red Bud or River Birch. 

Why Plant a Tree?

Trees provide many personal, neighborhood and town benefits throughout the year. Besides adding value and beauty to your property, trees provide a habitat for songbirds and other wildlife. They absorb pollution and provide cooling shade. By holding soil with their roots, trees reduce erosion and storm-water runoff.
