Upstate group holds clean-up event at Cleveland Park

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A Spartanburg group, called Tress Coalition, held a clean-up event Saturday.

The group aims to educate and inspire communities to care for trees.

The clean-up event was held at Cleveland Park.

Volunteers removed kudzu, ivy, and wisteria from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

“The weeds, wisteria, poison ivy will take over. and we’re trying to get it beautified,” said Helen Martenson. “It’s a beautiful area.”

“And, hopefully, I am hoping that this community will maintain what we have done here so far,” said Ruth Littlejohn.
