New Trees in Pioneer Park

Posted: Updated:
New trees are popping up in Pioneer Park.

Roughly 320 trees are taking root along the Missouri river.
City Forester Jackson Bird says a couple hundred trees were lost in Pioneer Park due to the flood and wind storms.
Now a variety of trees including honey locus, elm and populars are replacing those dead branches.

(Jackson Bird / Bismarck City Forester) "Pioneer and Sibley Park were the two parks that lost a lot of trees. This year we are going to do our Boy Scouts, Girl scouts and Tesoro planting in Sibley park so we are going to be planting a couple hundred trees down there this year to fill in the gaps down there."

Nearly 68-hundred dollars worth of trees were planted in Pioneer Park.
Bird says at the beginning of June the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Tesoro will also plant trees in Sibley Park to replace those lost by the storm.
