North Central High School (NCHS) received 50 Sawtooth Oak trees through a grant from the National Wildlife Federation this spring, providing an opportunity for students to dig in and learn. “I like that it is hands-on and they’ll be able to see the results of their work in a few years,” said NCHS horticulture teacher George Morrow, who also teaches agriculture power mechanics and turf classes. The trees can grow up to 50 feet at maturity, he said.
