Lady Lake's goal: Add to tree canopy; Lady Lake, FL

Lady Lake's goal: Add to tree canopy -
A tree canopy has long cast a scenic shadow in an old part of town, and now officials hope to replicate the look across other areas.

Town officials are moving forward with plans to apply for a state grant worth up to $24,000 to plant new trees and create a tree-canopy feel around the Rolling Acres Sports Complex. The complex is close to where commercial development has flourished in Lady Lake along U.S. Highway 441.

'What we're looking to do is try to add to the tree canopy,' said Mike Burske, director of the town's parks and recreation department. 'We want to make sure we have a proper urban forest.'
