Labelling tree

Tony Elders, with the Rainy River District Stewardship, affixed the first of half-a-dozen signs on a mature, native tree along Second Street East here last Wednesday in order to identify it as a white elm. The group is labelling trees as part of a project to provide the tree’s common name, as well as its scientific name and Ojibway name. It also is developing an inventory of local trees and had the help of Fort High students last week to measure and make note of each tree’s location.
