SUNDAY, MAY 27,1962 THE PHAROS-taiBUNE and LOGANSPORT PBESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE THIRTEEN Ginkgo Trees? Visit Logansport Parks Ever see a Ginkgo tree? Or a Chinese chestnut tree? Or. a Russian olive tree? You may have without being aware of it unless you are a tree fancier in the tradition of a Joyce Kilmer or a Gifford Pinchot. Every day scores of local residents pass within sight of a Ginkgo tree on the grounds of Memorial hospital. This unusual tree, virtually a living fossil, was abundant in early geologic times. Only one species remains. Native of Japan and China, it is known botanically as Ginkgo biloba. > You may have seen a: Chinese chestnut tree while spending an afternoon watching a baseball game at Riverside park, or you may' have lost a golf ball behind a Russian .olive tree while playing the Dykeman park links. Trees of some 50 species were planted in 11 cify parks last fall at the start of the city's reforestation program. All told, 421 individual trees were planted. While Logansport's parks still fall short of the 4,800 species of trees and shrubs in Chicago's Morton Arboretum, the collection here includes native species which together with those planted last fall make an arboretum of value to anyone interested in trees. The work of planting trees has been done by city park employes under the supervision of Superintendent Jesse'Riddleberger. Beginning eight or ten years ago, Dutch elm disease killed nearly all the stately American elms which once graced the parks in Logansport as in other cities of the Middle West. Two "years ago 110 dead trees were removed and 1 nearly 70 more were cut out last year. City officials decided that something must be done to preserve the appearance of 240" acres of land in the city's 13 parks. At the same time it was decided to rehabilitate the bird sanctuary at Dykeman park and a quarter- mile-long trail was cut through the woods there last winter. Repairs' are to be made on a building constructed many years ago for bird-watching in the sanctuary, Riddleberger said. Most of the newly planted trees were obtained from local nurseries or landscapers although some were dug out at Dykeman and replanted elsewhere. "We got a few trees from the state nursery, but most of the trees we plant have to be about 'four feet tall so children won't, disturb them," Riddleberger explained. About two .months ware spent on planting trees last fall and Riddleberger believes that most of the job has been completed. It may be the first time that there has been a concerted tree-planting program for the .Logansport city parks. , "I was glad to get hold 'of some nut trees like walnut, hickory, beech and English walnut," Riddleberger said. "Many of these trees were planted at Spencer park." "We planted some Japanese cherry trees like those in Washington near the river at Riverside park," he said. '• \ The funds from which theatres planting was financed are'run- ning low and .the number of trees planted this.fall will doubtless be fewer than last year,' Two years ago, before the program was started, only 34-,new trees were planted. The principal source of funds for tree planting is $15 payments charged property owners for cutting trees in front of their homes between the sidewalk and street. for fathers day...June 17th starts today!
