Cassadaga Honors Loss of Young Girl with Tree Planting, Celebrates First Year as Tree City USA

The Village of Cassadaga in Chautauqua County recently celebrated Arbor Day and dedicated a newly planted dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) to a seven-year-old Cassadaga girl, Emmaline A. Wilcox, tragically killed in a car accident last spring. Nate Murray (above left) from the Region 9 DEC Office attended the event and helped plant the dawn redwood tree. The Village also celebrated their first year as a Tree City USA.

Family members of Emmaline Wilcox gathered to remember and celebrate her with the planting of a dawn redwood tree.
