Tree planting money going to Sussex towns

Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and South Bethany are among towns getting money to transplant adult trees into backyards, parks and streets.

The money comes from the Delaware Forest Service’s Urban Forestry Program.  As part of the program, cities will be able to transplant trees that were grown from seedlings or saplings at tree farms.  Some of the transplanted trees could be up to 12 feet tall.  Newark and Delaware City are also getting some of the grant money for the program.
