LANARK — The Lanark City Park was enhanced with a new River Birch tree, thanks to the Lanark Tree Board and Sweitzer Nursery on Arbor Day Friday, April 27.

Tree Board member Renee Krick said, “We know how important it is to plant trees. For every tree we take out, we like to put one back in. We took around 20 trees down in town last year due to the emerald ash borer.”
“If anyone has questions or concerns in the city, or needs trees taken down or put in, contact anyone on the tree board,” said Tree Board member Derek Carroll. “Our work has really made a difference in the city.”
