Northampton Arborist Passes Away
(2007-10-23)
(wfcr) - The man credited with saving Northampton, Massachusetts' elm trees has died. Arborist Ed Cotton passed away Monday at the age of 85. He owned a tree service, but his care for the city's trees went far beyond his profession, says Lilly Lombard, a city resident and member of the "Tree Stewards of Northampton" with Cotton. She says the city would not look the way it does now, if it hadn't been for his work. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
