Program Initiated
To Preserve Trees
!n Courthouse Park
In an ail out eitort to protect
and preserve the trees in the
courthouse public square park,
the Ncble county commissioners
unanimously approved all nec
essary means to resolve that end.
At their meeting held Monday,
the board authorized Paul Davis
of the Davis Tree Service, of
Sarahsville, to perform what
work is necessary to prune and
remove all dead wood from trees
in the park.
They also requested that work
be done to treat the trees and
place them in as good a condi
tion as possible.
The commissioners set aside
the sum of $400.00 for this tree
preserving detail.
The need to initiate a program
to preserve the trees has become
more apparent in recent years,
since severe damages have
resulted during the past winters
from heavy ice accumulations on
the branches, causing many to
break at points where the trees
have suffered perhaps irrepar
able damages.
