Rotary Donates Fir Tree to Pataskala
To observe Arbor Day 2018, the Pataskala Rotary Club planted a Canaan Fir tree in Karr Park.
Rotarians world-wide were encouraged to plant trees on Arbor Day this April. Dean Ramsey of Pataskala was consulted by Rotarian Judy Baird regarding the right species to give to the City. He highly recommended the Canaan Fir tree because of its many fine characteristics including its growth pattern. The tree is expected to reach 25+ feet in height with growth of about one foot per year.
Mayor Mike Compton read an Arbor Day Proclamation at the tree dedication service held Thursday, April 26. Lenier Crawford, head of Pataskala Parks, attended and approved the location of the newest tree in Karr Park. B.J. King, City Administrator, accepted the fir tree from Rotarians Judy Baird, Ginny Evans, Bart Weiler, Alyssa Johnston, and President Angie Sherer.
