MEDINA – Jason Watts of the Medina Department of Public Works climbs into an excavator this morning at State Street Park. The DPW planted a new tree at the park for Arbor Day.
Medina is planting 36 trees this spring, with four new ones at the park.
Medina normally hosts a festive Arbor Day celebration with more than a hundred elementary school students. This week is spring break and the students are off from school.
Besides the four trees at State Street Park, Medina will plant 32 other trees, mostly along areas of East Center Street with additional plantings throughout the village. Species to be planted in the village this year include Elm, and varieties of Maple, London Plane, Honey Locust and Serviceberry.
Some volunteers will be at the park on Saturday for a cleanup effort from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Volunteers are urged to bring gloves and sturdy shoes.
