The Omaha bank will help the city replace a portion of the 2,000 trees lost at NP Dodge Park after 2011's flood.
First National Bank of Omaha is helping the city replace a portion of the 2,000 trees lost at NP Dodge Park after the flood of 2011.
The bankhas made a donation of $10,000 to restore the entrance. The donation through the Omaha Parks Foundation "Plant a Tree, Grow a Legacy" program has enabled the Parks Department to design and landscape the entry area which was severely damaged by the Missouri River flood.
After 102 days underwater, the tree damage was significant, and so far 80 trees have been restored in the park. Forty-five trees were planted as a result of First National Bank's contributions.
The trees which will be planted include a grove of Aspen, Serviceberry, Hackberry, Black Chokeberry, and Grow Low Sumac.
