The Lincoln County Master Gardeners recently helped plant 22 new trees and numerous shrubs at the Lincoln County courthouse in Troy. Although the majestic old trees were beautiful, many had become hazardous. Not only were many at the end of their life spans, but all were stressed due to improper pruning, disease and drought. In fact, disease had made its way to the trunk of one of the trees.
A plan was developed with the guidance of the Missouri Department of Conservation and approved by the county commissioners. A $10,000 grant was awarded to help fund this project.
The Master Gardeners would like to think:
With proper maintenance, the landscaping should add beauty to our county courthouse for many years to come. Our next project will be a teaching garden. More information on that soon!
