Boy Removes Dead Cluster Tree

Noa and his dad, Koi, pose next to their conquest

Very special thanks to Noa Hallonquist for helping out the cluster by removing a dead tree using his dad’s truck.  The tree has been an eyesore on Park Glen for over 6 months — and Noa just couldn’t stand it anymore.  The cluster will follow up by filling the hole with dirt and seeding the area in the Spring if necessary.  Thanks Noa!  And thanks to his parents for giving him the keys to the truck.
