Seguin Elementary was fortunate to receive a donation of five trees.
Ursula Lundin, along with the Parker County Master Gardeners, purchased and donated three Chinese Pistachio trees from Brazos River Trees.
Additionally, Denise Spitler, owner of Brazos River Trees on Tin Top, donated two Live Oak trees and also donated their services to plant them around the campus.
When the trees mature, they will provide shade around and near the school's playground areas. The Seguin Longhorns extend a huge THANK YOU to Parker County Master Gardners and to Brazos River Trees.
