Atherton to plant 5 cedar trees

The Atherton Tree Committee will plant five deodora cedar trees at Holbrook-Palmer Park on Saturday, March 2, in recognition of Arbor Day, which is March 7.

"Volunteers, with or without shovels, are invited to join the planting, which will start at 9 a.m. beside the entrance road inside the park," Tree Committee member Ted Haynes said in a press release.

The trees — a fast-growing, long-lived and drought-tolerant species — will continue a row of mature cedars along the front of the park, Mr. Haynes said.

Deodora cedars were recommended by the Tree Committee and approved by the town's Parks and Recreation Commission, he said.
