What started over 30 years ago as an effort of a small group of plant enthusiasts has evolved into an organization with an amazing impact on the green infrastructure of communities across the state. There are now over 90 affiliated arboretums in 52 communities. In addition, NSA has provided funding, plants and technical assistance for more than 1,300 landscape enhancement projects in 300 different towns. The total value of these projects is nearly $20 million. Of course the true value of these efforts isn’t measured in the dollars spent but rather in the greener nature these communities have achieved: more trees, more shade, more native plants, more wildlife and more beauty.
The following are initiatives the NSA is currently working on. More details about each one coming soon:
