Jennie Hiett, community development clerk, said tree board members will plant an aristocrat pear tree and answer questions. A local landscape firm, Proscape Inc., will plant two more trees at the site at a later time.
Hiett said the demonstration is a good opportunity for people who want to know how to plant and care for a tree. Abilene is a Tree City USA designated community, she said.
City staff will be on hand to give out brochures. In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled, Hiett said.
