Volunteers dig in_ plant trees at parks The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.:
Planting a tree isn’t as easy as it might sound.
It takes some muscle and teamwork.
A group of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne philosophy majors learned that the hard way as they joined almost 100 volunteers to plant trees at Metea County Park.
The event Saturday morning was part of the annual Great Tree Canopy Comeback, which aims to replenish tree growth in area parks.
Fort Wayne city parks, Allen County parks and the New Haven-Adams Township Park and Recreation Department also welcomed volunteers to plant more than 250 trees. About 40 of those were added to the front slope at Metea, Allen County Parks Director Jeff Baxter said.
