22 more Trees planted in York City

On Saturday, October 20, 2018, The Rotary Club of York, PA's Preserve Planet Earth Committee, members and families, assisted by cadets from the Bearcat Battalion of York High's JROTC troop removed stumps, rocks, bricks and concrete in existing tree wells to plant 22 trees in downtown York. The 22 trees included a variety of species - Cleveland Pear, Lilac, Hornbeam, and Linden Trees.

Special thinks to Rotarian Brian Mummert of W S Landscape Services who procured the trees, provided the mulch and put in a full day delivering, planting and cleaning up. Also, thanks to J T Hand and the York Water Company for free direct delivery of water for all the trees.

Finally a BOO-RA gung-ho award to Dennis Baughman and John Klinedienst who actually removed a dead tree by hand in order to plant a new live on at the York Academy.
