'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Aspinwall is getting another batch of trees through a Western Pennsylvania Conservancy program.

Volunteers will plant 28 trees throughout the community on Nov. 9.

Those trees follow the 24 that were planted last year through the program. This year's trees will focus on First and Third streets and Western Avenue, Ann Pawlikowski, head of the borough's Shade Tree Commission, said.

Trees at the top of the hill on Center Avenue also will be replaced.

Pawlikowski said the specific types of trees have been chosen by representatives from the conservancy. They map out what types of trees can grow best in each location.

That help and expertise has been positive for the community, Pawlikowski said.

“It's great to work with them because you get site appropriate and you get a variety,” Pawlikowski said.

The planting event will be similar to last year's program.

“It's a nice way to be involved in your community,” Pawlikowski said.

Planting day will begin at 9 a.m. Volunteers should be at the borough building at 217 Commercial Ave.

Tools and materials needed will be provided, and coffee, donuts and lunch will be available. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Pre-registration is required at www.paconserve.org/360.

For information, call 412-586-2386.
