LUBBOCK, Texas -

As an effort to beautify the community, the North and East Lubbock Community Development Corporation planted 22 trees in Mae Simmons Park.

The ceremony celebrated the stakeholders and organizations that are choosing to enhance North and East Lubbock.

This is the beginning of an ongoing project of beautification and will be planted on an annual basis throughout the community.

NELCDC Executive Director Monique Coleman said, "Tree planting, I think, is not just symbolic of life, but it helps to encourage people to do something, to take action, be involved, and stay involved. Be a part of the community."

Many of the trees planted, like Afghan Pine, Crapemyrtle and Pecan, are listed as native to Texas and drought-tolerant.
