WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE TREES?
The Village of Hortonville lost a great number of trees along Main Street, in our parks, and at many private residences during the storm on August 7, 2013. The Village's Tree Board is currently working with tree experts to develop a plan for the replanting of our urban forest and the re-beautification of our home town. The goal is to kick off the tree replacement program in the spring of 2014. We would like to remind everyone about the Memorial Tree Program. Please contact the Administration office at 779-6011 for more information.
