Spring Planting Program I
It's time to get growing on this year's Spring Planting Program!  City residents:  Place a tax-deductible order to have a tree planted in your boulevard, or, purchase one to plant in your yard.  Order forms in print are available at City Hall. Read the new and beautifully-written article, by our own local forester Otto Jacob, on planting and caring for newly-planted trees.  Keep an eye out for a second article, coming soon.
