The city also received the Tree City Growth Award for the third
consecutive year. Lincoln was one of the 523 communities throughout
the country to be given this recognition. This award is to recognize
environmental improvement and encourage higher levels of tree care
throughout America. The award is designed not only to recognize
achievement, but also to communicate new ideas and help the leaders
of all Tree City USA communities plan for improving their tree care.
On Wednesday at 2 p.m. a city crew will plant two October glory
maple trees on the north side of the Logan County Courthouse for

eight trees planted.
