(Harrison, Oh.) – More than a dozen trees will help beautify an area near Harrison High School.

The City of Harrison announced this week that city workers will plant 15 Japanese White Lilac trees along the south side of West Road.

The lilac trees will be placed between West Road and the parking areas at the high school activity center, which will act as a natural barrier.

A presentation that was originally planned for Arbor Day 2020 will take place Tuesday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the multipurpose room at the Harrison Community Center.  

The event will be limited to the first 35 people. Masks and social distancing will be required.
