Seeking Large Planting Pots for Tree Project

ColorBrightonGreen is continuing to purchase and nurse trees for later planting in the community. We will be purchasing tree seedlings from the Monroe County Soil and Water Conservation District and are in need of large pots to nurse them along to a size that can be transplanted in the community at a later date. This avoids the problem of having the seedlings accidentally mowed down or eaten by deer. If you have any 2-3 gallon pots suitable to give a tree seedling room to grow, please email us at and we will make arrangements to get them from you.

Fundraiser: Trees For Brighton

Help ColorBrightonGreen plant trees in Brighton!

In 2018, ColorBrightonGreen, with the help of the Town of Brighton, Clean Sweep volunteers and members of the French Road Elementary school community, planted 12 trees at French Road Elementary and 7 trees at Buckland Park.

Our goal is to plant 20 more trees this year. By purchasing trees at discount prices, we can plant more trees for our money. Our cost is about $30 a tree. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to pay for this year’s trees and buy more for next year.

Throw Some Shade Tree Project

This past fall, Color Brighton Green took on the initiative to plant native trees in Brighton. We started by working with the Town of Brighton to plant 10 trees around the playgrounds at Buckland Park. This spring we hope to plant 15 trees to shade the playgrounds at French Road Elementary School. We are raising funds for this by asking residents to sponsor trees and by selling t-shirts. Every 4 t-shirts sold will be enough to buy a new tree. We hope to plant more trees every year with the funds raised. If you are interested in helping out please complete and follow the instructions on the T-shirt order form-2.
