Hope, Arkansas, is a rural, 10-square-mile town. But this small town has quite a large claim to fame: it is the birthplace of the 42nd U.S. president, Bill Clinton.
Davey’s Dallas tree services recently visited Clinton’s childhood home, but their intention was more than to tour the visitor’s center. The crew performed tree services on a 100-year-old pecan tree in between the home and visitor’s center. The tree maintenance they performed on-site included cabling, hazard pruning, and deep-root fertilization.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s childhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Clinton’s former home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and it is a unit of the U.S. National Park Service. District Manager Brian Cox describes the home as “a neat little place that takes care of its grounds.” The home sits on a small piece of land with railroad tracks right beside it.
“This was as nice visitor center and museum,” Cox says. “It was definitely an interesting place.”
