"Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven."
— Rabindranath Tagore
We would like to congratulate Covington Home Depot Manager Craig Espeseth and Keep Covington/Newton Beautiful volunteers on a job well done in planting street trees in the Fairview Estates neighborhood.
Thanks to Espeseth, who serves on the KCNB business committee, KCNB was able to supplement their participation in the national NeighborWoods program with a $5,000 Home Depot grant for the planting project.
Trees are not only important for increasing property values, but also as providers of oxygen and as a way to reduce energy costs as they provide shade in the summer.
We hope that Home Depot and KCNB will team up again soon for another planting project in the county.
