The Town of Bath Streetscape Committee, Tree Board and Lions Club will be planting four crape myrtle trees in Berkeley Springs as part of a $4,915 Chesapeake Bay Community Grant.
The tree planting will start at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 21 near the intersection of Mercer and Union streets behind Hunter’s Hardware.
Reading Nurseries will deliver the trees and the holes for the trees will be dug the night before by the town’s Water Department.
The grant requires a 10% match by the town and volunteers are needed to provide in-kind participation to cover the matching funds.
One of the crape myrtles will be planted on the Fairfax Street green near the WWII Memorial.
The four trees complete the tree planting along the area of Mercer Street where new sidewalks were installed for the Streetscape project.
In February, 13 new trees were planted along the street by volunteers as part of the grant project.
