Cuero Tree Board seeks to preserve town's trees

The board includes chairman Anthony Netardus, secretary James Hedrick, and members Sandy Dukes, Gelasio Garcia, and Alton Meyer.
 
“Our mission includes the preservation of older, historical trees and to promote education to the community on how to care for and preserve trees,” Dukes said.
