The re-greening of Westport’s Main Street beginning this spring took another step toward reality today with approval of acceptance of a gift of 34 trees from a Connecticut nursery.
Only a few of the trees will be suitable for Main Street, however, Public Works Director Steve Edwards told the Board of Selectmen.
The board unanimously approved the gift by Planter’s Choice LLC, which has nurseries in Newtown and Watertown and calls itself “Connecticut’s premier grower and wholesaler of nursery stock.” The gift was valued at $8,664.
Edwards described the trees as a “magnanimous gift” from the company, which he said regularly makes end-of-season gifts to municipalities because it is overstocked.
