Mayor proclaims official town tree

January 28, 1994

Mayor Earl A. J. "Tim" Warehime Jr. proclaimed the white oak the official tree of the town of Manchester during Wednesday's Town Council meeting.

"We have probably the second oldest white oak in the state," he said.

That oak appears on the town seal.

Manchester has a second connection with the white oak. The late Earl L. Yingling, a longtime town resident, was chief caretaker of the Wye Oak on the Eastern Shore.

Councilwoman Charlotte Collett said yesterday the town may plant white oak seedlings as part of its Arbor Day celebrations this spring.
