Bonner County Daily Bee:
Gail Lyster knows by looking.
When the local artist and member of the city’s tree committee takes a detour through a city neighborhood, she notices immediately whether they are part of the urban forestry’s tree planting program.
The trees are neatly staked, pruned and ornate.
More often these days, a program called Neighborwoods, is at the heart of the new plantings.
It warms Lyster to be part of the effort.
“It makes you feel so good to see all those trees that are going to be building into our healthy urban forest, ” Lyster said.
