AURELIA - At its annual meeting last week, the Aurelia Heritage Society Board of Directors heard Duane Kent's suggestions about possible trees to replace two storm-damaged trees at the Heritage House.
The Sienna Glen maple has potential height of 60 feet, with a 40-foot spread. Its foliage is green, with a burgundy red in the fall. These trees were chosen by the Board because they have a shorter growing time than the other suggested trees, and also because the maple leaf is a symbol of Canada, which was the birthplace of the builder and original owner of the house, Reuben R. Whitney.
Kent, who works part-time at Del's, said he would be willing to transport the trees back to Aurelia, and he also volunteered to help in the planting process.
Tours of the home are available upon request. Contact City Hall in Aurelia, and they will forward your request to a Heritage Society member.
