The county is looking for six “Green Giant” – thuja plicata  – trees for the golf course and one each of “Regent” (Sophora japonica), “Moonglow” (Magnolia Virginia variant australis), “Emer II” (Ulmis parviflora “Allee”), “Briotti” (Aesculus x carnera) and “Cherokee Princess” (Cornus florida) for Colonial Park.
