Baxter plants 50 trees on Main Street
Imagine driving down a tree-lined boulevard, a canopy of trees creating a shady lane of beauty. That’s what the City of Baxter is hoping for.
The city recently received a “Trees for Kids” grant from the State of Iowa for 50 trees, and on Wednesday, the entire Baxter High School was out around town planting the trees. Plantings were made at Restland Cemetery, the school playground and on both sides of South Main Street in Baxter. Approximately 150 volunteers, including high school students, teachers and city employees helped with the planting.
Trees along Main Street in the utility easement area will provide shade and community beautification. Trees in these areas have died over the years and no replacement program was in place.
