More Trees in Sanford

In an effort to become a Tree City USA, the City of Sanford has planted three more trees this week.

The trees of choice are the Green Vase variety of Zelkova, a popular option for parking lots, sidewalks, and other urban areas.

Two of the newly planted trees will replace two trees that were damaged in the high winds that wreaked havoc in Sanford a few weeks ago.

These trees are located at the top of the Sanford Police Department's parking lot and were originally planted in honor of Roscoe C. Petty, who passed away from cancer on January 28, 2006 after serving on the Sanford Police Department for 35 years.

A third tree was planted at the bottom of the Sanford Police Department's lot. It will fill in an empty area and create a more lush, shady area for parking.
