The city is planting about 110 trees at various locations in West Lynn. The trees, which are varied species, are being planted primarily at Classical High School, Breed Middle School, and Callahan Elementary School, and at Breed, Hood, and Frey parks, with some also along selected streets. The planting was set to begin Nov. 29 and take about a week to complete. The project is being funded through a $28,000 state Urban Forestry Challenge grant that the city is matching with $33,900 in federal Community Development Block Grant money and in-kind labor from the Department of Public Works, according to community development director James Marsh, whose office obtained the state grant. Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy and students from the three West Lynn schools were set to participate in the tree plantings on Thursday.
