With Friday’s observance of Arbor Day dampened by inclement weather, horticulture students and faculty from Penn College’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center marked the occasion by undertaking a pair of projects under more pleasant conditions Monday. One of those collaborative enterprises involved relocating a weeping white pine from outside Dauphin Hall. The tree, salvaged when a planter near the residence hall was removed, found a new home in the ESC conifer garden. In another industrious endeavor, involving students of assistant professor Michael A. Dincher, 24 new bare-root street trees were planted in Williamsport neighborhoods.
