Tree lovers get grants for landscaping and new trees HoumaToday.com The Courier Houma, LA: HOUMA — Local tree advocates received two grants this month that will add more trees to the parish and more landscaping to downtown Houma.
One is a $5,000 grant to create a landscape plan for downtown Houma, and the other is a donation of 100 trees for the parish's streets and parks.
The Apache Foundation awarded the Terrebonne Tree Board 100 five-gallon trees — a mixture of Savannah hollies, American hollies and crape myrtles — that will be planted along boulevards, streets and parks, said Sybil Guidry, Tree Board chairwoman.
“We are excited to get these trees into the ground as the planting season begins. We feel like these trees will go a long way in restoring the urban and rural canopy in the parish,” Guidry said.
