Supervisor May W. Newburger recently announced that the town is supporting LIPA's Wire Friendly Tree program. With the help of local arborists and nurserymen, LIPA has developed a program that encourages the planting of slower growing trees - like varieties of maple and non-fruiting crabapples - under electric wires. LIPA is offering a rebate of $25 to municipalities or civic associations for each Wire Friendly Tree of standard planting size planted near overhead electric wires.
