Jane Magnolia Tree at Elk County Courthouse.

The Elk County Commissioners (Fritz Lecker, Matt Quesenberry, and Joe Daghir) commemorated Earth Day 2021 by stopping by and checking on the Jane Magnolia tree they planted last year for Earth Day, shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began. At the time, the Commissioners planted a rhododendron bush until the Magnolia tree arrived later in the month because of COVID-19 travel delays. If you are by the Courthouse, stop on by and smell the intoxicating fragrance of the tree that now graces the parking lot entrance to the Main Courthouse and the Elk County Prison.
