Garden Club president wants new trees for town

CLEAR SPRING - Now that a number of trees along U.S. 40 (Cumberland Street) have died, the president of the Clear Spring Garden Club is hoping the replacements will be a little hardier.

"We are hoping the town council will request dogwoods or holly trees instead of the serviceberry trees which were there before," said Cindy Downs at Monday's night town meeting.

The state had planted the serviceberry trees during the streetscape renovations that were completed early last year. Since then, a number of those trees have died, Downs said.

The tour of the town, live Nativity at the Bragunier Farm and tour of historic Plumb Grove attracted several hundred visitors.

Residents may dispose of Christmas trees at county lot

CLEAR SPRING - As in years past, town residents again will be able to dispose of their old Christmas trees by taking them to the county lot to the rear of C&C Pub at 122 Cumberland St.

Town Mayor Paul Hose Jr. said the deadline is Feb. 10.

The town then will have the trees removed and recycled into mulch.
