To the Editor:
The fourth annual community tree sale is underway. We are offering four different selections: birch, maple, pink and white crab apple trees. Prices range from $45.00 to $110.00. The deadline for ordering is May 7 and delivery is mid-May at the city garage.
This is a great way to celebrate the birth of a baby, to memorialize the loss of a loved one, to celebrate a special occasion or to beautify your own yard. You can also donate a tree to beautify our city. To order your tree, go to the Wis. Rapids City website (www.wirapids.org) and follow the link to the tree sale or call Sue Winch (715-213-1747).
Thanks to all who supported this project in the past.Due to the emerald ash borer damage, the city will be treating and replacing dozens of ash trees in the next three years. Your support of this community tree sale is needed now more than ever.
Sue Winch and Gloria Kubisiak, Members of the Mayor’s Council on Beautification
