The Wilmington Tree Commission is hosting a fall Tribute Tree Project with a short Dedication Ceremony that is scheduled for Friday, October 21st, 2011 at noon. The Dedication Ceremony will be held on the south side of Fife Avenue, between the Engineer’s Office and the College Art Building, at the curve of the bike path (4-C Bicentennial Trail). Please park in the David Williams Park parking lot (enter from Fife Ave.) It is a short walk across Fife Ave. to access the trail and tree dedication area.

The dedication of the Quercus Macrocarpa, (Burr oak tree), will be in memory of Keenan Rinehart.
