Local volunteer group helps beautify city of Northampton

Hampshire County

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The front of Northampton’s Cooley Dickinson Hospital is sporting a greener look Saturday.

Volunteers with the “Tree Northampton” group spent much of the day planting trees, many of them facing the highway.

It’s in keeping with Tree Northampton’s mandate to help beautify their city. The group says they’re pleased with the help they received from the city of Northampton fulfilling their mission.

Tree Northampton’s Executive Director Alicia Purdy told 22News, “The city of Northampton buys the trees and they provide all the materials we need to plant the trees, so the mulch and the water.”

Tree Northampton is all volunteer based and has recently began planting trees again during the pandemic.
