Volunteers clean up Indiantown Gap National Cemetery

ANNVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) - Tree removal employees got together and donated a full days work at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery.

The nonprofit Saluting Branches held its fourth annual volunteer event on Wednesday. 

Employees from Climb High Tree Service spent the day clearing overgrown and dead branches and trimming trees to maintain the beauty of the cemetery. 

The cleanup also provides visitors with a serene place to honor their loved ones. 

"It's not only about keeping it nice and keeping it a nice and peaceful place for people to come and honor their loved ones, but there's also a safety aspect to it, to keep visitors safe so that they can be calm and not have to worry about any hazardous branches," said Julie Weaver, manager of Climb High Tree Service.
