"Friendship is a sheltering tree."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge c. 1830

View of County Street, south from Clinton Street,
in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

As we can see from this historic streetscape, trees add a majesty and grace to the outstanding architecture for which New Bedford is known.  We all recognize the intrinsic value of 100-year-old elms and oaks and how they improve the quality of our lives.  There is no greater expression of  hope for the future than the planting of a tree.

You will become a friend to future generations in the city with the gift of a tree.  The cost of a tree is $225.  Please print out and return the reply form below with your tax-deductible contribution, which can be made "in honor" or "in memory" of a friend or family member.  All donations will be recorded in a permanent register which will be on display in the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park Visitor Center.

*Please call the Preservation Society office (508/997-6425) if you would like to order note cards imprinted with this photograph. Imprinted in green on ivory notecards - 5 1/2" x 4 1/2."  A package of five cards with matching envelopes is $3 (plus $2 shipping and handling).  Proceeds will benefit New Bedford Re-Leaf.
