Hannibal Tree Board gets important donation

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

The Hannibal Tree Board received a generous $500 donation from the Salt River Master Gardeners.

The donation comes just in time as the Tree Board says it's expecting to have to replant about a dozen trees due to the drought.  The Board takes care of about 250 trees inside the city.  Tree Board President Kristy Trevathan said this donation will go a long way for the group.

"It's validity that our program is meaningful and people appreciate us and that we serve a very good purpose in our community, but $500 will help buy several trees we need to replace after a very serious drought," Trevathan said.

The annual budget for the Tree Board is $2,600.
