Trees planted in Sheridan

Posted:

The weather certainly provided a great opportunity for people in Sheridan to spend their Friday planting trees.

As part of Wyoming's Arbor Day celebration, Friday was Sheridan Tree Day.

So local groups planted 56 trees from 28 different species in the new Kendrick Park Arboretum.

The trees are located just south of the Trail End Historic Site.

The purpose of the arboretum is to see what types of trees can survive in Sheridan's environment.

The city's parks manager says the trees will also benefit the community in many ways.

"They reduce carbon dioxide.  They're great for aesthetics.  They improve the quality of life.  They improve property values.  They're great wildlife habitat," said Chuck Carbert.

The arboretum was funded by a state forestry grant.
