Living Christmas Trees Planted in Newman Park

Streets staff finishes planting the Mondale Pine purchased by Paco and Lynn

The living Christmas trees that decorated two homes of Newman Park residents have returned to the neighborhood. The Mondale pines purchased by Marco and Cindy Milazzo and Paco Dominguez and Lynn Coyle were planted in Newman Park this morning by the City Streets Department.

City Arborist, Brent Pearson, made sure that the trees purchased by Newmanistas would be planted in our park. "Brent's our hero," a neighbor was heard to say.

A third tree was purchased by Trent and Natalie Thompson former residents of the neighborhood. That tree went to nearby Memorial Park, a community park.

Newman Park Neighborhood Association President, Lynn Coyle, said: "It's a real incentive to buy a living Christmas tree when you know it will be planted in your neighborhood park."
