A newspaper editor and historian, John appreciates our natural environment and trees as well as the importance of business. Balance and harmony are key to sustaining both. Trees serve humankind in many ways. One of which is filtering pollutants. Data shows that depending on the type of tree, on average, a single tree can absorb as much as 48 lbs (21.77 kgs of Co2 per year.
Therefore, the WCC decided a most fitting award would be a tree. We are pleased to report that a Sycamore, one of John's favorites, has been planted in the Palisado Avenue River Walk area. Our appreciation to the Town, John Govoni, and Michael Giacomazzi for their assistance in attaining the tree and having it planted.
