Heaven in the heart of the Berkshires

DBC Assists With Elm Tree Project

Dalton Tree Warden Peter Bacon is slowly reintroducing the elm tree back into Dalton with a new disease-resistant variety called Princeton Elm Tree.  These trees are about 90% resistant to the Dutch elm disease that wiped out most of the elm trees that were a common and beautiful sight throughout the Berkshires for many, many years. Peter contacted John Corliss of the Dalton CRA and got permission for us to plant two specimens in front of the CRA in a late-Arbor day celebration on May 10, 2008. We are hoping that these trees will grow big and tall and be a pleasant sight for those traveling through our town.
