Mark Bays (left above, of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry) and Collinsville Mayor Stan Sallee add dirt to support the tree planted Monday in the plaza near City Hall. The tree is grown from seed gathered from the Oklahoma Survivor Tree. 300 to 500 seeds are gathered yearly and taken to a tree farm near Clinton before being distributed by special request. State Representative Earl Sears made the request for Collinsville and helped with the planting ceremony.
