Neighborhood Receives Big (Early) Christmas Present

Our neighborhood is richer by about thirty-five fine, large assorted trees.

Many of you are well aware of this because you were part of the working crew that planted them on Nov 16 Tree Planting Day sponsored by Tree Foundation. The assortment includes Yoshino Cherry, Chinese Dogwood, Crepe Myrtle, Red Buckeye and Amur Maple [small variety]. This wealth of trees added to our Arboretum inventory was made possible by a partnership of the Tree Foundation, HGN, and NES as a demonstration of a neighborhood planting trees specifically chosen as suitable plantings under/near utility lines.

When spring comes we will all be aware of the new trees, with 12 to 14 new Yoshinos blooming along with some Chinese Dogwoods, budding Maples and Buckeye. The Crepe Myrtles will come into their show in summer.

Your HGN Tree Committee expresses sincere thanks to the Tree Foundation and to NES. Please express your appreciation also.

From your Tree Committee: Berdelle Campbell, Bill Hollings, Jeanece Seals
