DSC_0170COSHOCTON – Sixth graders at Coshocton Elementary School celebrated Arbor Day by watching a Greenspire Linden tree be planted in their honor. The presentation was done by the Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District and the Coshocton City Tree Commission. “This is your tree to watch,” said Deb Bigelow, director of soil and water. “When you graduate you can see how much it’s grown.” Tom Heading from the tree commission said the tree should be three times its size by the time the students graduate in 2021. “It will be a nice place for them to take pictures,” he said. “The tree is perfect for this zone. It’s pretty and provides good shade. Long term we’d like to add at least two more because they work well in small groves.” The student council officers, who are all in sixth grade, helped plant the tree and each of the sixth graders received a White Pine seedling.
