Dundee receives grant for tree canopy NewsChief.com:
Dundee's Main Street, also a section of Scenic Highway, will soon become a more picturesque, tree-lined road as it passes through the center of town.
The town recently received a $18,750 non-matching grant from the Florida Department of Forestry program, 'Florida Forest Health Improvement Initiative.' The grant is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed by Congress in February 2009.
'The town proposed that, if awarded the grant, that the town would create a tree canopy along a blighted stretch of roadway in downtown Dundee along Ridge Scenic Highway,' said Town Manager Andy Stewart.
According to Stewart, Dundee was ranked the highest of 135 cities throughout the state vying for funds.
