Rotary funds tree commission project

| September 13, 2018

COSHOCTON – It was a rainy morning, but the job had to get done! There were 21 trees to be planted and over a dozen volunteers showed up Saturday morning, Sept. 8, to help with the planting. This beautification project along South Seventh Street and at Bancroft Park was headed by the Coshocton Tree Commission and funded by the Coshocton Rotary Club. Worldwide, Rotary Clubs are celebrating their 100 anniversary and their goal is to plant a tree for each member. This is a great contribution by Coshocton’s Rotary Club.

Members of the tree commission, a couple of employees from the street department, some Rotary members, and few volunteers helped to plant 11 Thornless Honeylocusts and 10 Ginkgo trees in spite of the rain. James Plumbing Ltd. donated the use of a backhoe and gasoline; one of their employees donated his time in operating the backhoe.

It will take a couple of years for the trees to get established, but they will certainly enhance these areas. Members of the tree commission thank Coshocton Rotary for their support and for the volunteers who braved the weather to get this planting project done. The tree commission is a volunteer group appointed by the mayor and works with the city in maintaining the tree areas along the streets of Coshocton.
