Brightening Marshalltown, One Tree at a Time
MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa -- Amid the devastation caused by the Marshalltown tornado were the trees; uprooted, snapped, or damaged beyond hope of recovery. “You don’t think about them so much when you have them, but when they're shade...the downtown looks naked now” said Linda Harvey. Harvey works the front desk at the Marshalltown Best Western; but when she gets off her shift, she's been turning damaged trees into art installations.
