SavATree Helps Raise Eco-Awareness at Riverkeeper's Shad Festival

Garrison, NY—SavATree, the green choice for tree care, hosted a rope climbing event at the 19th Annual Riverkeeper’s Shad Festival and Hudson River Celebration to help raise awareness of the health of the Hudson River and green living. In spite of cloudy skies, more than one thousand people from all over Westchester NY and the tri-state area came out to the historic Boscobel Restoration.

SavATree Branch Manager Doug Erickson said, “SavATree’s rope climbing event is a much anticipated and sought after activity. Our hope is that by combining fun activities and environmental awareness, we can help in building a community that appreciates the importance of caring for the earth.”

SavATree has been involved with Riverkeeper for many years and has always been an innovator in the development of green, environmentally-friendly tree care, lawn service and plant health care. Riverkeeper's event coordinator Teresa Walsh said, “We are proud to again have SavATree participate in our festival. Their leadership in environmentally friendly tree care and lawn services meshes well with our focus on improving the health of the Hudson River. We hope they will continue to participate and help spread environmental awareness to more and more people.”

During the festival, SavATree gave out “Go Green” t-shirts to children and a special green edition of “Timely Tips” to their parents that stresses the importance of hybrid and organic program options in tree care and lawn service. This was the first year the popular activity was open to adults as well as children.
