CCHS Plants Trees at Historic Cemetery

To mark Earth Day, Clarke County High School students and their horticulture teacher Allyson Snapp planted 32 trees at Milton Valley Cemetery on April 20. The project was funded with a new Virginia Department of Forestry “Forest Sustainability Grant.” Clarke County received grant money to make improvements at the historic cemetery at the east end of Josephine Street near Jack Enders Boulevard. New warehouses are under construction along the boulevard, and the trees will provide a visual buffer between the cemetery and the warehouses. Moore & Dorsey Nursery in Berryville donated 25 fast-growing Green Giant Arborvitae, six American Holly trees, and a Celestial Dogwood tree. Photo by Clarke County
