Tito’s, Morton and Public Works Celebrate the Birthday of the Trees


In perhaps the most hostile of worldwide times since dinosaurs were in charge of the planet, a brief timeout for the tender, beautifully uncomplicated act of planting a baby tree mere feet from one of the busiest intersections in the region is an appealing act that should trigger the relief app in all of our DNAs.
