City asking benefactors to provide trees for park



The City of Hagerstown is turning to the public to help buy trees for Fairgrounds Park.

For $200, individuals or companies can buy a tree for the Fairgrounds.

Those paying for a tree will be listed on a plaque at a pavilion planned for the center of the Fairgrounds playing fields, said City Public Information Manager Karen Giffin.

Giffin said contributors will be able to choose from among a variety of trees for the Fairgrounds.

She said the types available include purple ash, summit ash, Douglas fir, sugar maple, star magnolia, eastern redbud, Yoshino cherry, Kwanzan cherry, cockspur hawthorn and red oak.

When planted the trees will be about 2-inches thick at their base and 5-feet to 6-feet tall, Giffin said.

For more information contact Giffin at 301-739-8577, extension 116.
