Modern Woodmen members of Chapter 5458 with Washington Court House City Tree Committee members and other volunteers joined together to purchase and plant two London Plane Trees at Eyman Park (pond side) near Paint Creek on Saturday morning, Nov. 7.

The city park lost quite a few ash trees due to the ash borer infestation a couple years back and thanks to the Modern Woodman Plant a Tree Program, Eyman Park was able to receive two new trees.

Modern Woodmen of America is a Fraternal Financial Services company that partners with members on community improvement projects. Modern Woodmen encourages each local chapter to organize a tree-planting project each year. Through the Plant a Tree Program, Modern Woodmen will reimburse up to $250 for the cost of trees.

In addition to providing an opportunity to beautify your community, the Plant a Tree project is ecologically-minded and a great way for families to get together to improve their local city park, school yard or other community area.
