From the Queens Chronicle:
Woodside residents are happy to see new greenery after Amtrak recently made good on its promise to replace trees it felled along tracks in the area last spring as part of a maintenance program.
The federal railroad company began planting new trees in the area about two weeks ago, starting on 50th Street and ending just beyond 28th Avenue.Another shipment of trees is due, and the company will continue planting where it left off, according to community members.
To accommodate the new trees and shrubs, Amtrak will be cutting a few remaining trees on 31st Avenue and 57th Street and on 28th Avenue and 56th Place.
Our federal stimulus money at work!
