LandTrust, gallery team up to trim trees

The LandTrust for Central North Carolina celebrated the holiday season at its seventh annual Tree Trimming Ceremony at Centennial Park in the Fulton Heights neighborhood Sunday evening.
Children and their families were invited to hang environmentally friendly ornaments, which can be eaten by wildlife during the cold winter months.
The LandTrust sponsored an ornament-making party at the Green Goat Gallery in Spencer Saturday, where children made their environmentally friendly ornaments to hang at the Centennial Park ceremony or in their own yards.
“The LandTrust’s annual tree-trimming and ornament-making parties are a wonderful way to celebrate the gift of nature during the holiday season,” said Jason Walser, executive director at The LandTrust. “Over the past six years, this event has become a favorite for many of our supporters and their families.”
The LandTrust made a $10,000 donation toward the creation of Centennial Park, which is owned and maintained by the city of Salisbury. In 2008, the LandTrust sponsored the planting of a Norway spruce in the park.
“We are excited to return to the park this year to decorate the spruce and chart its growth,” said Walser. “I want to express the LandTrust’s gratitude to the neighbors of Fulton Heights, who helped organize this event, and the Green Goat Gallery in Spencer for hosting us Saturday.”
