Central Falls to plant 125 trees for 125th anniversary

CENTRAL FALLS, R.I (WLNE) –  Central Falls Mayor James A. Diossa announced Monday that the city will be planting 125 trees by the end of the year to celebrate the city’s 125th anniversary.

The trees are part of a comprehensive plan to make the city greener and beautify the city’s streets.

“It is so exciting to see this particular project coming together and reaching our goal of 125 trees,” said Mayor James A. Diossa. “We have put a strong emphasis on programs about trees throughout my tenure as mayor and I am so happy to see that we could still celebrate the 125th anniversary of Central Falls by planting these trees this year even if we couldn’t all come together for a big celebration.”

Mr. David and Andrew Brown of Whittet-Higgins, a local manufacturing company, allowed the city to plant 25 trees on their property near the new Ivan D. Perez field.

The City hopes to have all projects completed prior to the ground freezing this year.
