On Thursday, June 17, 2021, Sustainable Saratoga planted three large trees at SPAC, between the Hall of Springs and the Roosevelt Baths.

The trees were funded primarily by a generous donation from BCA Architects & Engineers, with additional funding coming from Sustainable Saratoga’s donors to their tree fund. The BCA Architects & Engineers funding was part of their 50th-anniversary celebrations in 2020, but the planting was postponed due to the pandemic.

The new sugar maple, white oak and tulip tree are all large-growing shade trees that will bring people and pets relief from the sun for decades to come.

This continues a tree-planting partnership between SPAC and Sustainable Saratoga. In 2018, Sustainable Saratoga and volunteers from Saratoga Eagle planted five trees around the Charles Wood gazebo; those trees were funded by Saratoga Eagle.
