Dr Alex Shigo, World Renown as the father of Modern Arboriculture once remarked that touching trees in addition to being good for the soul was also good for the trees; “Touching Trees” is a very good way to capture the events in Sturbridge of this Arbor Day 2011. A significant milestone was reached with over 54 residents and business along with some 50 Burgess students, 60 Tantasqua Regional HS Students and two local tree care and 1 landscape company all coming together to celebrate Arbor day in one form or another.
