Oswego a tree city — again

Oswego was just awarded its third year of being a Tree City USA! In the photo is former Oswego resident Andy Hillman, president of New York State Urban Forestry Council, Phil and June MacArthur of Oswego and Sally Kellogg, Urban Forestry Program assistant and state forester, gather at an event in Albany in March when Oswego received its Tree City designation. Phil MacArthur is chair of Oswego’s Tree Advisory Board and June MacArthur is a board member NYS Urban Forestry Council. The Oswego Tree Stewards, a group of tree loving volunteers and green thumb people, came forward when Mary Vanouse, Oswego community development director, saw the importance of a healthy urban canopy and helped create and support such an organization. Anyone who would like to join the group for Earth Day, Arbor Day, or any Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon and learn about pruning trees, go to Facebook and the Oswego  Tree Stewards page.
