Oliver Nurseries donates 50 trees to Fairfield


Oliver Nurseries has donated and planted more than 50 trees around Fairfield.

In honor of its 50 years in business in Fairfield, Oliver Nurseries has donated and planted more than 50 trees within the town this season.

The program began last Arbor Day with two dogwood trees planted at Greenfield Hill Cemetery. The remaining trees have been planted on town property throughout Fairfield

Scott Jamison, who has owned the Bronson Road nursery since 1986, came up with the idea as a way of giving back to the community. His “50 Trees” program also coincides with the town’s 375th anniversary.

Jamison thought donating trees would be a good idea, particularly in light of the trees lost throughout town following storms such as Irene and Sandy. The trees include oaks, maples, cherry and birch trees, elms and blackgums.

In addition to the Fairfield donations, three Karpick Red Maples and three Crimson Spire Oaks were planted along Main Street in Westport.

Earlier this summer, Fairfield was presented with its 26th “Tree City USA” award in recognition of Fairfield’s sound forestry management that involves caring for and managing public trees. Fairfield is tied with one other community in receiving the most ‘Tree City USA’ awards.
