Galesburg Marks Arbor Day With Tree Planting in Lincoln Park WGIL Radio News - Galesburg,IL,USA
Galesburg's Lincoln Park is home to a new tree as part of one of the city's many "green" initiatives.City officials marked Arbor Day on Friday by planting a Liberty Elm tree near the park's Veterans Memorial.City Manager Dane Bragg tells WGIL planting trees in the city is good for its future."Galesburg is a Tree City USA and we want to try to keep that up. Going back to the wind storms that we had in 2007 and some of the losses that we've had from prior ice storms, it is really important that we try to keep our tree canopy intact (and) keep planning for the future of our trees in the community."
