Favorite Tree & Reason: I would have to choose the Copper Beech (Fagus sylvatica).

With a copper color leaf with hints of purple and green, the leaves are unique and complement any yard.
Fall River Partners:
Fall River Street Tree Planting Program FRSTPP
Incorporated as a non-profit in 2000, the FRSTPP is a citizen volunteer group which believes in the importance of an urban tree canopy in a city rich with natural resources. In the last twenty years, volunteer Tree Stewards have planted more than 2,000 trees and forged relationships with committed municipal leaders. As a result of the city’s inclusion in the Greening the Gateway Cities Program since 2015, neighborhoods in Fall River are reaping the benefits of additional tree plantings and educational programs. While awaiting the formation of a citywide Tree Commission for care and pruning, we continue to cultivate our own Tree Farm and new outreach initiatives, and to develop our vision of a sustainable program in collaboration with city and community partners.
