Visitors to the Exeter Cemetery in southeast Nebraska are already enjoying the 25 trees planted two years with a $10,000 grant.

Now, cemetery officials say they need help removing the old dead
ones.

The York News-Times reports that the little money the cemetery had for tree removal is long gone, but there are many diseased trees that still need to be removed.

Jodee Mika, secretary of the cemetery board, tells the newspaper that there are four big pines that are dying, and six that need to be removed. Mika says the estimated cost to remove them and grind the stump is $1,000 each.

The board is now seeking grant money and donations to get the job done.
