On Monday afternoon in Hoie Hall at St. Luke’s Church in East Hampton, the Ladies’ Village Improvement Society shared their concern for keeping East Hampton Village beautiful. In honor of Arbor Day on April 27, the LVIS held a panel discussion, inviting four top local tree experts, Deborah Green from Bartlett Tree Experts, Mike Gaines from CW Arborists, Charlie Marder from Marders, and Mariah Whitmore from Whitmore’s, to take turns speaking about everything “tree,” from planning, selecting, and caring for our precious resource. LVIS President Anne Thomas and Olivia Brooks, LVIS Vice Chair of Trees, welcomed the guests and introduced the speakers.
