In the first meeting of 2022, the Windom Tree Commission spent time revisiting plans for the 2022 tree program.
Late in 2021, the commission ordered 110 trees for three projects. Plans are to plant 50 trees for wellhead protection in the Legion Field area, plus 30 at Gove Acres and 30 available for purchase by homeowners for boulevard planting.
The slate of officers for the commission includes: Chairman Steve Fresk, Vice Chair Jim Knigge, Secretary Deborah Polzin and board members Joanne Kaiser and Ron Kuecker. Plans are to add two more board members.
