Roughly 20 volunteers planted native shrubs and trees west of Road B on Tuesday for Fermilab’s annual Arbor Day event.

The tree planters included laboratory employees, their family members and Fermilab Natural Areas volunteers.

They planted hackberry trees, hickory trees, oak trees and viburnum shrubs.
