The town may be named Plainview, but it seems residents are doing a lot to change that by planting lots of trees... But in this case its the trunk of the tree that might get your attention.
Earl the Squirrel is just one of six trees sculpted into friendly characters. These trees were more than 50 years old but, rather than chopping them down as they started to die, H.L. Stewart gave them a new life.
You can find them in the city park right here on the courthouse lawn.
