Community Tree Project
The Community Tree Project was started on February 2, 2013. A combined thirty-one trees were planted on the municipal areas of the Longview Police Station, City Hall and Public Library. Keep Longview Beautiful’s largest fundraiser, Death by Chocolate, funded this magnificent project. Partnering with District Forester Daniel Duncum of Texas A&M Forestry Service the trees were chosen to provide shade to parking lots and buildings as well as replace some of the hundreds of trees Longview had lost to drought. The Longview Parks and Recreation Division planted the trees and continues a healthy schedule to maintain their beauty.
