Tree board plants trees at cemetery PDF Print E-mail

The Grant Tree Board enlisted the aid of the city’s bobcat to dig holes for new trees at Grant’s Fairview Cemetery on Wednesday, Sept. 1. Nine new trees, alternately lindens and Kentucky coffeetrees, now line the western perimeter of the cemetery. Both varieties are well suited to the region and should eventually reach a height of 60-70 feet with a spread of 40-50 feet.
