ALBION – The Village of Albion is taking steps to become a Tree City USA Community. The village will be planting trees later this month and will hold an Arbor Day celebration on April 27 at Mount Albion Cemetery.

That 1 p.m. event will include speeches from County Historian Matt Ballard, and three students from Albion Central School. The students will help plant some of the new trees in the cemetery.

The village has received a $950 grant from the NYS Urban Forestry Council. The matching funds will help the village get started on becoming an official Tree City.

The village also is establishing a Tree Advisory Board to help plan tree plantings in the future.
