Phase one of the Kaulmont Park project wrapped up last week with the planting of a number of trees around the park's walking trail.
Clythera Hornung, secretary and treasurer for the Shade Tree Commission, explained that the trees were chosen because they represent 18 native Pennsylvania trees.
"Our goal is to have examples of each of the 50 to 60 native Pa. tree species that are hardy to this area. We plan to seek funding to continue this project in the future," Hornung said.
The trees are part of a tree identification program and will not become memorial trees.
