Johnny Appleseed Will Be Saturday

Posted on 16 May 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Two weeks ago, a late season snow storm and continuing rain caused organizers to postpone the annual Johnny Appleseed tree planting in Boone.  The rain date was set for this Saturday, May 18th and after some warm temperatures and wind, planting locations have dried nicely.  John Murphy, Boone Park Commission, said volunteers will gather at Herman Park Pavilion at 8:00 AM  Saturday.  Just over 100-trees will be planted or replanted this spring and it’s not expected to take very long with a good contingent of volunteers.  The biggest share of the work will be in the Boone Business Park, where 80-trees will be planted.  Over 30-will be replanted, mostly along Hancock Drive.  Since 1984, more than 9,300 trees have been planted in Boone.  Murphy says volunteers just need to show up.  Any bringing any equipment should make sure it’s properly marked for identification.
