HOLDINGFORD -- The Stearns County Parks Department is asking for volunteers to help plant some native plum trees.

The parks department received 125 samplings of the native wild plum samplings to be planted near the Holdingford covered Bridge and Lake Wobegon Trail.

Wild plum is a common, native species in central Minnesota that can produce large, dense thickets through its suckering root system.
