Iron Mountain Tree Board has trees for sale
IRON MOUNTAIN — The Iron Mountain Tree Board, working with the Dickinson Conservation District, was awarded a $5,000 grant from the American Transmission Company to plant more shade trees in the city.
The IM Tree Board wants to focus planting on West A Street to form a walking corridor from City Park to Iron Mountain Schools and the downtown area. Benefits from these trees are improved air quality, reduced energy bills, increased pedestrian safety, and increased aesthetics.
The Iron Mountain Tree Board also is having their annual street tree sale for boulevard trees. There are six trees to choose from:
– Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry: Has white flowers, delicious berries, and a gorgeous red fall color.
– Fire Bird Crabapple: A white flowering crabapple.
– American Hophornbeam: A native tree with excellent deer resistance.
– Magyar Ginko: A male variety that doesn’t produce fruit and has a beautiful gold fall color.
– Espresso Kentucky Coffeetree: A seedless variety of a beautiful shade tree with blue-green foliage.
– Dutch Elm Disease Resistant Elm: The classic American street tree with resistance to disease.
Trees are $170 which includes the planting and care of trees for the first year. Order forms can be found at Iron Mountain City hall and are due by Dec. 16. Please contact Isaac Micheau at 906-774-8530 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
