WILKES-BARRE – The River Common park has caught the eye of tree lovers who are coming to the city Friday for the summer meeting of the Northeast Pennsylvania Community Tree Association.
The association, a collection of regional shade-tree commissions and others interested in urban greenery, chose Wilkes-Barre for its annual summer meeting because of the new riverside park and the city’s recent designation as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. The city has planted more than 400 trees in the past five years, according to the association.
