Pictured are, McAlester High school students from the Service Learning course and Biology classes during a tree planting ceremony. The McAlester Tree Board partnered with Pride In McAlester, the City of McAlester and McAlester Public Schools to plant trees at the McAlester High School this Thursday. Twelve trees were able to be planted around McAlester thanks to funding from Public Service Company of Oklahoma. Due to budget constraints of the City of McAlester, no City funds were able to be dedicated to tree planting this year, so PIM and PSO dedicated trees they had slated for planting to the City and Tree Board. Vice Mayor Sam Mason read from a proclamation issued by Mayor Steve Harrison who was unable to attend today’s tree planting. Sabre Tate of the McAlester Tree Board spoke about the importance of trees in our community and recognized partners that were present during the ceremony. McAlester High school students from the Service Learning course and Biology classes came out to assist in the planting and City of McAlester Gardener Robbie Patton spoke to the pupils about how to properly plant and care for trees. Following the discussions and acknowledgements, students completed the tree planting by filling in the ground surrounding the tree and helping build a berm to retain water.
