— Winners have been named for this year's E-Tree awards for outstanding efforts in fostering a healthy, valuable urban forest in Edmond.

Carpet Interiors Inc., owned by Mary Hauser, received the Outstanding Urban Forest Enhancement award, and Warren Filley and Wayne Sadeghy of Belmont Farms each won the Outstanding Urban Forest Preservation award.

“Businesses, individual citizens and developers such as Carpet Interiors, Warren Filley and Wayne Sadeghy contribute to making Edmond a ‘Great Place to Grow,'” said Leigh Martin, the city's Urban Forestry assistant.

Hauser originally developed the site now occupied by Silver Tree Interiors, 1801 E 15th St.
