Sharpsburg committee wants to recognize 'historic' trees - The Times-Herald:
By Jeff Bishop
Do you think you may have an historically significant tree in your yard or in your neighborhood? If so, there's a new committee in Sharpsburg that wants to hear about it. Although the Sharpsburg Tree Commission actually began its life two years ago, it has only recently been reactivated, say members Polly Garlington and Roy Matthews, chairman.
'Our mission is to preserve our urban forest and to raise people's awareness of the trees we have in and around town,' said Matthews. 'We want to stimulate interest in trees.'
The historic tree recognition project is a big part of that effort, he said.
