Eight New Trees Planted in Wayne

The trees are part of the Big Tree Project, which aims to replenish a dwindling canopy.

Eight trees were planted in downtown Wayne last week as part of a project that aims to replenish a dwindling canopy in Radnor Township.

They were placed in empty tree pits or replaced dead trees along Lancaster and North Wayne avenues. The species include Maples and Zelkovas.

According to Kimberley Donches, who is in charge of the Big Tree Project, the Chanticleer Foundation made grant to Radnor Township to be administered with help of the Radnor Conservancy.

Donaches said the trees were provided by Mayfield Gardens, which sold them at a great discount and also planted the trees.

Since its inception, the Big Tree Project has planted about 100 trees, most on Lancaster Avenue and a few along the Radnor Trail.

In November alone the township felled about 100 trees that were dying, dead or dangerous, Donches said.

She said she hopes that "twenty years from now it will be somewhat green as you drive through the township."

Donches also said that she hopes to create a homeowner tree program that would educate and assist residents replenish the tree canopy in Radnor.
