The goal of our Gateway Project is beautifying the principal entryways to Newburyport to welcome visitors.
High Street, Three Corners, Green Street, and Merrimac Street have been areas of focus.
The goal of our High Street project is to restore the beauty of High Street by replacing the trees lost to disease, hazards, or vandalism. Since 2015 over 250 new trees have been planted.
An inventory of all public trees in Newburyport was completed in 2018. With the help of committed interns and Tree Commission volunteers collected data on 11,464 trees. Data is continually updated. The inventory can be viewed here.
FoNT raises funds to to increase the scope of the biannual (Spring and Fall) street tree planting undertaken by the Tree Commission.
Green-Your-Street is another way for the community to get involved. If a street is targeted for a planting, neighbors can contribute funds to increase the number of trees planted during that time.
