[ARCHIVED] Help Beautify Woodbridge


The Town of Woodbridge has two donation opportunities — benches and trees —for people looking to provide a lasting gift to the Town.

“One of my goals is to make the Town Center Campus a more attractive public gathering space,” says First Selectman Beth Heller. “These two donation programs will help us maintain and upgrade the look and feel of our Town Center, which is an important reflection on our town.”

Following input from the Commission on the Use of Publicly Owned Properties, the Board of Selectmen agreed to use one style of bench going forward to provide a cohesive look and feel to Town-owned properties.

Benches available for donation cost $2,800 for a 6-foot bench and $3,100 for an 8-foot bench. The price includes the cost of delivery, installation by the Town and a plaque on which the purchaser may have a message inscribed.  The Town has identified several locations where benches are needed. Four have already been installed at the Town Center at the new Arden’s Garden.

A form for bench donation is available on the Town website ( and can be reached via the Town’s Public Works Department page and through the Recreation Department page.

The tree donation program came into being following the tree removal at Fitzgerald Tract. First Selectman Heller asked staff to look into the possibility of replanting the denuded area along Center Road with trees that would not endanger the power lines and would add to the space’s natural beauty.

The plan is to line Fitzgerald Fitness Tract along Center Road with Dogwoods and Crabapples. 

Anyone interested in the tree donation program should contact Betsy Yagla at or 203-389-3403 or fill out a tree donation form which can also be found on the Town website on the Town’s Public Works Department page and through the Recreation Department page.

Ten of the estimated 20 trees at Fitzgerald have already been planted and another five will be planted in the spring.
