Celebrating Arbor Day

The members of the Gothenburg Tree Board observed Arbor Day last week by planting a new tree at Lake Helen. The Exclamation Planetree will eventually grow to a height of about 55 feet and offer a beautiful yellow color to the park’s landscape in the fall. Tree board members are (l-r)—Dan Frerichs, Kim Slack, Connie Earll, Justin Dowdy, Jeff Kennedy and Nathan Baker. This is the second year of a three-year tree planting program in the city which is being funded by the City Tree Board budget and a Natural Resources District grant.
