MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Workers from Harley-Davidson powertrain plant have planted the last two of a 110-tree project in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley. It’s a tribute to the company’s 110th anniversary that also contributes to the community.

“I had some relatives that used to work for the Milwaukee Railroad in this spot. Arthur Davidson and Bill Harley, his good friend, worked for the Milwaukee Railroad. So to think back to that time period — and now myself planting these trees to commemorate 110 years. It’s very exciting,” Bill Davidson, great-grandson of the Motor Co.’s founder, told WITI.

The trees will be part of Three Bridges Park, a new 24-acre park under development by the Urban Ecology Center and Menomonee Valley Partners.
