October 26, 2011 Superior Sun, Superior, Arizona Page 11 Modern Woodmen donate trees inSuperior and at Arboretum By Taylor Beard Green! Green is the new trend throughout the world,, not only to become more environmentally tiiendly, but also to sustain the nature of any given place. Fortunately our lovely area has just added a few more leafy greens to its legions, in more areas that one and they have done this through the help of the Modem Woodmen. Each year, the Modem Woodmen supplies an area with a $250 tree grant and a $500 Neighborhood grant; both Superior and the Boyce Thompson Arboretum are the recipients this year from the Globe-Miami Chapters. The Modem Woodmen approached the staff at Boyce Thompson with the grant considering the damage that was done during the recent Pickelpost Fire, yet the staff at the Arboretum extended their neighborly affection and recommended that Superior be the recipients of these grants instead as the town was in the process of beautifying its streets. The Town of Superior and the Superior Chamber of Commerce were then contacted to be involved with the grants and were happy to receive them. The Town of Superior received the $250 grant to plant trees on Main Street and the Superior Chamber of Commerce received the $500 neighborhood grant to beautiful the landscaping at the junction of Main Street and US Highway 60. "The Town of Superior and the .Superior Chamber of Commerce are grateful for the help the Modem Woodmen have given us to beautify multiple aspects of our community," Sue Anderson of the Superior Chamber sai& The Modem Woodmen were very considerate of the actions of the Boyce Thompson Arboretum !owards the town of Superior and decided to give the Arboretum both of the other grants their chapter had available. The Arboretum has used the $250 tree grant to add new oaks to their collection and were happy to use the $500 grant to add new plants to the front gate to replace flora destroyed, by the See Trees, Page 13
