Two 20-foot oaks were planted at the Frazier Park Library October 19.

The skies may have been weeping the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 19, but many people in Frazier Park felt a spark of hope, despite the rain, as two 20-foot oak trees were planted at the Frazier Park Library site. They replaced two heritage oaks, one 400 years old, the other 250-300 years old, that were killed during construction of the parking lot drainage system.
Gary Ripling of Highland Pacific Landscaping (of Cuddy Valley) supervised about four crew members who applied straps to each tree box before the oaks were hoisted over their respective holes by T&T Truck & Crane Service. Michelle Maga looked on with pride. She helped to acquire the plants for the landscaping and the replacement oaks. Tilton Pacific Construction had several people there also as the Highland Pacific crew removed the wooden boxes from the trees and finished the planting.
