Older Trees for Tribs
The Montgomery CAC has hosted Trees for Tribs events for over 10 years. Trees have been planted along the banks of the Wallkill River at Benedict Farm Park and the Tin Brook. Here are some of the photos from our older events!

Spring 2012 Trees for Trips
We planted at two locations in Walden this year on the Tin Brook. With the help of 60+ volunteers, we planted 200 trees and shrubs along the Tin Brook in Walden, New York on May 6th, 2012. We met at Wooster Grove Park at Noon and after planting about 65 trees and shrubs there we then went and planted the rest of the trees and shrubs along the Tin Brook in Walden Estates. Below is how we decided where to plant this year and how it looked before the plantings.

October 2013 Trees for Tribs
On October 19th, 2013 we once again were involved in the Trees for Tribs program. We planted more trees and shrubs at Walden Estates near the area we planted in last year.

Location: Walden Estates in Walden, New York 12586 near the Tin Brook (click here for map)
Date: October 19, 2013
Time: 10 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

A special thanks to all the volunteers that came out this year to help make this a great success and to the Walden Dept. of Parks for cleaning up the area before we planted.

2020 Trees for Tribs
Volunteers met for a socially distanced TOM CAC Trees for Tribs tree maintenance event on November 1, 2020. Everyone wore masks while they inspected previously planted trees in Benedict Farm Park for survivorship, cleared weeds and climbing vines from the trees and tree bases, and removed the protective tubes where trees had matured sufficiently.
