Tree planting in December? How about a frenzy of tree planting?

According to the Frederick News-Post, the City of Frederick will begin a frenzy of tree planting this month as it works to improve a canopy lagging behind other cities in the state.

1500 new trees will be planted in 15 city parks by the end of 2008. Fifteen varieties of trees native to the Frederick area will be planted including white oak and crataegus winter king hawthorn.

Planting 1500 trees in less than 23 days = 1 frenzy.
