Shade Tree Commission completes tree-planting | The Pittston Dispatch, Pittston, PA:
The West Wyoming Shade Tree Commission completed another successful tree-planting project. The borough was awarded a grant from the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority (LHVA) for $2000 to make this project possible. West Wyoming Borough’s TreeVitalize Project was part of an overall effort to increase the tree canopy cover in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Metropolitan Region. The Shade Tree Commission, with help from students from the Wyoming Area Secondary Center Ecology Class, their instructor Mrs. Molly Kearns, Certified Municipal Arborist Mary Pat Appel, Council members Eileen Cipriani, Gil Atherholt, Dan Gadomski, the borough DPW workers, and resident volunteers planted 36 trees. Since the inception of the West Wyoming Shade Tree Commission 176 trees have been planted in the borough.
