Minot's newest, largest park was getting a new look today...
(Brian Johnson - Minot City Forester) "Find the first lateral root, which would be this guy here...this goes under an inch of soil. Don't go any deeper than that or you will kill the tree."
Minot City Forester Brian Johnson gave a few pointers to employees from Enbridge who were at Minot's Centennial Park planting trees today.
The park is north of Souris Valley Golf Course and features the bark park -- and Jack Hoeven Baseball Complex.
It was fitting to have Enbridge employees doing the heavy lifting today -- because Enbridge awarded a grant to the park district to pay for these trees...
(Brian Johnson - Minot City Forester) "It is going to be very beautiful. When we are all finished with this, this phase we have 26 trees going in and last year we put in 50 big trees so when we are finished this is going to be a very inviting area to come and visit."
Centennial Park was devastated by flood waters in 2011 -- and today's work continues the process of bringing it back to a condition even better than pre-flood.
