Plant a tree and save the world - at least that's what Kearney cemetery adviser and curator Steve Baye believes.

The Kearney cemetery doubles as an arboretum, and after a grant from the Re-tree Nebraska organization, they received eight more trees to plant.

The tree planting - open to the public - also served to show others how to plant a tree.

Four trees were planted on Thursday, including a chinkapin oak.

They were also given a pecan tree and lindon trees.

Baye has planted many trees at the arboretum that are now few decades old and standing tall.

He believes the trees brings a peacefulness to the area for the public to enjoy.

He thinks these trees are promoting fresh air and a shady spot for future generations.
