Did you know that the presence of trees in our lives has been proven to improve the quality of our lives? Trees clean our air and beautify our communities. They reduce soil erosion and enhance the water quality of our local waterways. Trees can reduce heating and cooling costs and improve human health. For over 40 years, the York County Conservation District has hosted an annual tree seedling sale. Each year, the Conservation District sells over 20,000 seedlings that are planted in York County and surrounding areas.
The varieties available at the spring 2016 sale include native tree seedlings as well as numerous fruit-bearing trees and shrubs. Again this year, you can stop by for a free Blue Spruce or White Pine seedling on Thursday, April 14th at Rocky Ridge Park. Simply bring the coupon from this newsletter and we will give you a free seedling to plant in your yard (one per person). Go to http://www.yorkccd.org/ to see the complete order form and the description of each plant being offered.
It was under the authority of the Lancaster County Court that Dover Township was formed in 1743. It was formed out of old Manchester Township which was so large that it even extended into Adams County. The township's name, Dover, was selected because of an Englishman's nostalgia for his earlier home in England.
