Honor the Tree Man

The City of Hartford recognized Ed Richardson, the Tree Man, with a proclamation on November 12th for his work identifying and mapping notable trees in the city. Ed created tree maps for Elizabeth Park, Bushnell Park, Cedar Hill Cemetery, and the Institute for Living. Ed also led many tree walks in the city delighting and educating people about the natural beauty and importance of trees. Ed's daughter, Heidi Barter, CFPA Executive Director, Eric Hammerling, and Hartford's City Forester, Heather Dionne, were on hand for the proclamation presentation.
