Devils Lake High School students in Mr. Jim Onerheim's science class plant maple trees at Minnie H Elementary School. Two trees were planted each at Minnie H, Sweetwater and Prairie View. The plants were donated by Landscapes Unlimited.

The gift of beautification. That's what Landscapes Unlimited helped give Devils Lake Public Schools with a recent donation.

The Devils Lake business donated six maple trees to the school Tuesday afternoon. The science class of Mr. Jim Onerheim picked up the trees and planted them. Two new trees sit at Minnie H, Sweetwater and Prairie View Elementary schools. Last year, 10 fruit trees were given to the school by the business.

Landscapes Unlimited owner Steve Bourcy and nursery manager Pam Wangler are proud to have the opportunity to work with the schools.

"We are very excited to be a part of the work Mr. Onerheim and his class are doing," Wangler told the Journal. "It's great to partner with the schools for his project."
