April 09, 2013

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — The Borough of Waynesboro, which is working in conjunction with Mainstreet Waynesboro Inc., recently was awarded a Pennsylvania Urban and Community Forestry Council Challenge grant for $3,500.

The money will be used toward the purchase of 31 trees to be placed in the Eighth Street median, according to a news release.

The borough anticipates completing the project this month. It will be planting 10 forest pansies, 11 sugar tymes and 10 ivory silks in the median, the news release stated.

The borough offered thanks to individuals and organizations who offered matching funds.

A tree-trimming seminar will be hosted by the borough’s shade tree commission at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 20, at 137 S. Phillips Ave.

Anyone interested in learning best practices for tree trimming and care is welcome to attend.
