The event is one of nearly 40 that KIB participates in annually, the result being about 2,500 trees planted.
Tony Adrian, president of the neighborhood homeowners association, said this is first of three plantings for the community, which is located off Bluff Road and north of Epler Avenue, where Adrian Orchards’ fruit trees once thrived.
