Great news! In response to many calls and emails from CFPA supporters and partners, Governor Malloy has vetoed HB 5220, a poorly crafted bill that could have pitted neighbors against each other in litigious squabbles over trees. We will work with the Governor and legislators to come up with a better solution in the future than was proposed in this bill.

reinterprets fantasies…inspires creativity. In nature, a child finds freedom, fantasy, and privacy…”
