Matthew Foti, President of Matthew R. Foti Landscape Design & Construction, Inc., will explore the relationship of trees and people around the world as well as the historic significance of some of our very own native trees. As the featured arborist for WGBH’s This Old House from 1988 to 2015, Matt provided tree care advice to millions of viewers.
This program is cosponsored by the Newton Tree Conservancy, Newton Conservators and Green Newton. Flyer 10-30-18 Trees Around the World
Our goal is to promote the health of Newton’s trees through:
- Funding for planting and care of new trees, as well as preservation pruning and tree maintenance in a way that will supplement – not replace – city funding
- Educational programs to build public awareness of the value of trees and the risks of not properly caring for and replacing trees along streets and in parks and other public places, and to help people know how to keep their own trees healthy
- Training programs and volunteer opportunities to give citizens an opportunity to participate in tree maintenance and planting
