Fifth-grade students at Benson Public Schools planted trees near Park View Manor in Benson during Arbor Da

Fifth-grade students at Benson Public Schools planted trees near Park View Manor in Benson during Arbor Day.



They planted six trees this year: three Triumph Elms, and three Sugar Maples, with some help from City of Benson staff. The students took part in the entire process, from digging the hole to putting the tree in the hole to putting the dirt back in the hole to staking the tree and then giving it water.



This was the 23rd year the Benson 5th graders have planted trees during the annual Arbor Day observance.
