Three Wausaukee School elementary classes assisted in the planting. They were Mrs. Mongin's Kindergart-ners,and third grade classes of Mrs. Shaw and Miss. Graetz, assisted by Mr. Moser, PE teacher. Kirchmayer and Selmer explained the importance of digging safely and having the area checked for underground pipes and lines as well as overhead power lines. They also discussed the benefits trees give such as shade, lumber, and air quality. They also explained the planting process and the kids participated from the beginning. This is the 7th year of participation.
In addition to the three nursery trees planted, Kirchmayer brought with him approximately 50 small Dogwood, Crab apple, and Cranberry trees provided by WPS for students to take home and plant.
