Recognition Tree Sculpture
In September 2018, FoNT introduced this Rail Trail bas-relief sculpture, designed by Wire by Ryan owner Ryan Kelley and donated by FoNT to the City. The sculpture is designed to give people and institutions a means to memorialize, honor or dedicate an inscribed silver leaf to persons or organizations.

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 are areas of focus.
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.
