First they should use their own money.

But if they are going to do this, they should plant Fruit trees that can be harvested for the local food pantry and help in self sufficiency providing some food for the hungry/poor.

This is so unnecessary. Townships all over the U.S. sponsor "ARBOR DAY" in schools, in organizations this has been going on for more than forty years! The appropriate utility companies are contacted and it is a 'join effort' this bill is not necessary and tax payer money should not be spent. Civic organizations have been and always will be involved in tree planting. No need for government to get involved at all and spend tax payer money which I guarantee will be wasted.
