To beautify and enrich the look of the downtown area, 27 trees were added along First Center Avenue and Exchange St. The trees have a yearly check-up to make sure they have no diseases, they are trimmed when needed and fertilized to keep them healthy. Although maintaining the trees can be a challenge, the most important thing is finding the right tree to plant that accents the buildings. We decorate the trees with Christmas lights to send a warm glow to everyone during the season.
For 2014 we replaced 12 damaged and dying trees with beautiful white lilac trees. They are a straight, slow growing tree which will enhance the downtown area.
In 2015 we replace the rest of the damaged and dying trees. In the spring, you will see the warm glow of white welcoming flowers down First Center Avenue.
