(12/08/08) City of West Palm Beach Mayor Lois J. Frankel will join neighborhood leaders in kicking off a City tree replacement program at a ceremonial tree planting on Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 1401 9th Street.

Through a new tree planting program, the City will be helping to replace trees lost due to the storms and hurricanes of recent years. In the coming months, the City will give 750 trees to neighborhood groups, which will then have the trees planted. The trees will help increase the City’s tree canopy, continuing the City’s commitment to sustainability.
