Sheboygan Plants 700 trees in Maywood Park

We were in the news again with our donation to the Sheboygan Parks and Forestry Department this spring.  On Saturday, May 5th, volunteers planted 700 trees in Maywood Park in Sheboygan as part of the annual Join Hands Day in the park.

"About half the trees were donated by Walmart. The rest were purchased from Sheboygan County's annual tree sale with donations from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Northwoods Casket Co. in Beaver Dam and its local partner, Lippert-Olson Funeral Home.

Northwoods Casket has also funded a reforestation project with the state Department of Natural Resources in the Kettle Moraine State Forest Northern Unit in Sheboygan County.  Patricia Murphy, the regional forestry supervisor, said in a press release that "Northwoods Casket's funding will help plant approximately 10,000 seedlings, or about 10 acres, and will be part of a larger reforestation project scheduled in the state forest this spring."
