Mayor Don Ness is doing his part to plant 5oo new trees in the city , declaring today May 17th as Arbor Day in the city of Duluth.

According to The Northlands News Center A Forestry Specialist is working with the city to map out where to plant the trees throughout Duluth.

I love the trees we have on our our block, they are not very big yet, but I hope we are in our house long enough to see them thrive and drape over our street someday.

If you are interested in having a tree planted on your block you need to contact Buildings and Grounds Maintenance in Duluth. Just one more way to beautify our city for years and generations to come.
