New city orchard contains two dozen fruit trees

PENSACOLA  --  The City of Pensacola has a new public orchard with two dozen fruit trees. Volunteers planted the trees Monday at Hollice T. Williams Park, under I-110.

They were donated by the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation and American Water Charitable Foundation.

The FTPF's Chief Arborist, Rico Montenegro, who led the planting says the trees are good for the soil, the air, and the people.

"It's a source of fresh nutrition, because a lot of people are lacking in that," he said. "Plus it'll be a demonstration for the community to see what can be grown here."

The trees include pears, plums, persimmons, apples, and citrus fruits.
