A tree grows in New Haven

Chapel Haven students pitched in recently to help plant five new trees on their campus at 1040 Whalley Ave. as part of the GreenSkills Program offered by the Urban Resources Initiative, officials said. GreenSkills is an internship program that brings college and high school interns together to plant street trees. Chapel Haven received two lindens, two honey locusts and one small pear tree through the program. Chapel Haven is a private, nonprofit special education and independent living program that teaches young adults with cognitive and social disabilities to live independent and productive lives.
