Asheboro Mayor's Grove featured in Courier-Tribune

What better way to spend the first day of spring than walking outside among the historic trees at the Mayor’s Grove? On Friday, some Balfour Elementary students toured the grove as part of an Arbor Day celebration held by Trees Asheboro.
Tim Womick talks about a Juliett G. Low Southern Magnolia honoring Elijah Moffitt, the sixth mayor of Asheboro as, from left, students McKenzie Byrd, Jesus Arellano, Mayor David Jarrell and Chad Phillips and Owen George, both with Trees Asheboro, listen. The City Arboretum is located at North Asheboro Park and includes a dogwood grown from seed from Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace and an apple tree grown from a cutting of the last known surviving apple Johnny Appleseed himself planted.
