Patrick Kadow and Greg Ensslen pull a tree out of the back of a yellow truck to plant at the cemetery at Soniat and Loyola Sunday morning. The tree planting was the November service project for Neighbors United. Parkway Partners, a nonprofit dedicated to beautifying New Orleans, donated 16 trees to Neighbors United. A dozen trees were planted on the road along St. Vincent's Cemetery. "We are just trying to beautify the area," said Kadow, who organized the event. Photo by Sabree Hill (
