American Electric Power donated a flowering cherry tree to the Scioto County Welcome Center on Wednesday, November 16. Brandon Hull, AEP Forester, made the gift possible. The Portsmouth Shade Tree Commission prepared the planting site. One of the goals of the Tree Commission is to promote urban forestry, which is good for the environment and beautiful to behold.
