Woods Bros Realty agents and staff recently planted 125 trees in the Pioneers Park area, in honor of the company’s 125-plus years in the community.
Woods Bros Realty worked with Lincoln Parks and Recreation to line several areas of the park and the golf course with trees. The company wanted to give back to the community, and decided to honor some of its history with Pioneers Park.
Legend has it that Mark Woods was the one who suggested to John F. Harris that he should gift a park to the citizens of Lincoln. It was also reported (by F. Pace Woods II in his “Keeping the Pace” series) that the Woods family donated evergreen trees and lilac bushes from their nursery.
Arla Meyer, managing broker of the Woods Bros Lincolnshire Square office, coordinated the event.
“This is a way to give back to something Woods Bros was a part of since the beginning,” she said. “It’s the little things that can and do make a difference.”
Dozens of agents and staff arrived at the park September 19, 2015, and had 125 trees planted in just over one hour.
