More than 200 trees that will hopefully provide shade and oxygen for generations to come in Radnor Township have been planted since the inception of the Big Tree Project, which added another 200 to public and private properties over the past month.

Recently, two trees in downtown Wayne, in front of the Gryphon Cafe and Teresa's, were planted to replace trees that had died.

Twenty-four street trees were planted on properties to replace ones that had been felled for a number of reasons. Homeowners were offered the trees for a $35 fee, said Kimberly Donches.

Fifteen new trees were planted among four Radnor parks: Emlen Tunnell, James C. Dittmar, Odorisio and Warren Filipone.

One hundred and fifty trees were also planted along the stream bank at The Willows to replace those removed by the township. (The removal was not part of the Big Tree Project, Donches said. But they needed trees to prevent streambank erosion.)

Recently the Chanticleer Foundation donated $20,000 to the Big Tree Project, which is also supported by the Radnor Conservancy and Radnor Township, which plants some of the trees. Mayfield Gardens also assists in planting.
