Honoring Arbor Day: Smiling beside a newly planted Katsura tree at Altamont’s Benjamin Crupe Bozenkill Park, are, from left, Trustee William Aylward, Mayor James Gaughan, Bobbi and Joe DeFranco of Black Creek Nursery, volunteer and Park Committee member Keith Lee, Assistant Department of Public Works Superintendent Larry Adams, and Trustee Christine Marshall. “The tree was donated by Black Creek Nursery and adds a beautiful specimen to the many unusual trees that the village has planted in the park over the last several years for the enjoyment of current and future Altamont residents,” said Mayor Gaughan. The Katsura is a flowring tree native to China and Japan.
