There’s no doubt that planting trees is good for the environment. In the case of the recent and forthcoming donations of several beautiful trees to the Sag Harbor School District from local residents, it’s the educational environment and community ecosystem that will also get a boost. Not only is it a thoughtful and generous move on the part of those donors, but cultivating donations to the school district is a sustainable way to grow opportunities for the schools without impacting the taxpayers’ pockets.
