COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.—The Village of Cooperstown, a recognized Tree City USA, will be holding its
belated annual Arbor Day celebration on Friday, October 15, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. The event will take
place on Brooklyn Avenue where a new street tree is to be planted. The public is invited to attend.
This year’s tree will memorialize the life of Dennis Tallman, who passed away on June 20, 2018. In 1982,
Dennis moved from New Jersey to Fly Creek, where he started Tallman Enterprises Tree and Aerial
Services. Dennis served for years on the Village of Cooperstown’s Tree Advisory Committee, in which
capacity he generously shared his expertise.
Arbor Day began in 1872 in Nebraska City, Nebraska. The event, typically held in late April or early May
across the country, is meant to recognize and support the planting of trees, which provide many
benefits to local communities like Cooperstown. This year’s celebration has been delayed since the
spring of 2020 due to the COVID concerns.
