IN HONOR OF ARBOR DAY

From left, Peter White Public Library Director Andrea Ingmire, PWPL volunteer gardener Carol Fitzgerald, Snowbound Books owner Dianne Patrick, and Marquette City Arborist and Sexton Paul Albert fill in soil around a freshly planted autumn radiance red maple at the city’s Native Garden on Third Street in honor of Arbor Day. Albert said planting a tree at this time of the year is a city tradition. “The best time to plant a tree is 50 years ago,” Albert said. “The second best time is today.” Arbor Day was celebrated nationally on April 28, but is typically pushed back in Marquette due to weather conditions, Albert said.
