Granville Tree and Landscape Commission
Friday, June 14, 2013
Attending: Don Hostetter, Lynne Kishler, Don Pheneger, Jim Siegel
We discussed the current brochure for memorial trees at the Bryn Du mansion and came up with suggestions that would clarify our involvement in the program, while also mentioning that arrangements could be made for trees to be planted on village streets if so desired. Much discussion followed about the details of the merger and of the need to correctly handle the cash flow since checks will be written to Bryn Du and we will order the trees. The village finance director will need to oversee this transfer of funds and ensure it is done correctly. We also talked about our obligation to separately maintain our formerly donated trees. We have funds that were transferred to our tree commission from the Granville Garden Club.
Don Pheneger shared that the Maple Grove Cemetery, which is maintained by the township trustees, has a memorial tree program and the trees are marked.
