More tree planting

There has been a lot of tree planting around Rensselaer this summer. Some was needed to replace trees that were knocked down, as this tree in Weston Cemetery was.
It is nice to see new trees, though I know that the people on the lawnmowers do not care for them.
A bunch of trees were planted by the high school. Below is a line of white pines that will someday be a prominent boundary between the hospital and the high school.
There are more new trees near the football practice field. The Rensselaer Urban Forestry Council has been encouraging some of these plantings.
You can tell that the pictures above were taken a while back--everything is so green. Do you prefer the bright green, or do you like the muted greens, the yellows, the browns, and the reds of fall?

Yea, it is good to see so many new trees. I hope they are the right ones for the locations. I think I like the reds, but bright yellow works too.
