The City of Edinburg received about a dozen trees that were planted near E on Thursday.
It's part of the city's commitment to increase urban forestry by partnering with Reliant Energy who provided the trees. The trees were planted around Heritage Tree Plaza just north of Edinburg City Hall and will provide shade and comfort to visitors at the plaza. The planted trees are part of the new downtown revitalization project that was approved by the city council. A total of 30 trees will be planted in Edinburg and at McAllen's Quinta Mazatlan.
