PRESERVE PLANET EARTH COMMITTEE PLANTS 500TH TREE.
On Tuesday, November 24th members of the Preserve Planet Earth Committee planted the 500th tree in their ongoing endeavor to "Restore the Canopy" to the City of York.
At Allen Park on Tremont Street, members of the committee planted a 12' Karpick Maple, which was donated by committee member Brian Mummert and Worden & Shewell Landscaping. A formal dedication with Mayor Kim Bracey will be held in early December.
The goal of this project, initiated in 2008, is to plant 1,000 trees in the City of York. While the committee is celebrating the half-way point, it is committed to raising almost $500,000 so the project will continue and trees will be planted and maintained in perpetuity.
