Joslyn Trees Spruced Up

Omaha’s historic Joslyn Castle saw some spruce-up work on the grounds Friday.

Workers from Terry Hughes Tree Service pruned the largest standing English Oak tree in the state as an Arbor Day gift. They also planted a couple of brand new trees on the site.

Organizers want everyone to remember that Arbor Day is truly a Nebraska holiday.

Terry Hughes said, "It started in Nebraska, Nebraska City. J. Sterling Morton, when he first came to Nebraska, he saw nothing but level ground. What he did was introduce trees to Nebraska City, not just one tree but a variety of trees. Some of them are still down there today."

The tree service is providing all the yard work at the Joslyn free of charge.
