APPLE VALLEY REVIEW
Mayor Barb Stanton’s belief that 2012 was the year of partnerships became reality in the form of a 25-foot deodar cedar tree, donated to the Town by The Home Depot in Apple Valley.
The tree, which was planted on April 25 at Civic Park, replaced the town’s original tree that was planted in 2002 and died of bark beetle infestation in September.
The new tree, which arrived in a 60-gallon-box, was donated after Town Manager Frank Robinson approached The Home Depot to see if they could help.
