The Amboy Town Tree Committee sent this lovely narrative from their Arbor Day tree planting dedication on April 27, 2019, supported by a Council Arbor Day grant. Amboy (pop. ~1265) is located in the southeast part of Oswego County.
“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.” —Franklin Delano Roosevelt
On this Arbor Day 2019, thanks to a generous grant from the NYS Urban Forestry Council, we in the Town of Amboy are building on that tradition by adding a new grove of trees in our town park—trees that will flower and fruit and even add a bit of shade to this popular community gathering spot.
