DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (AP) - Crews from two electric cooperatives teamed up to clean up trees affected by emerald ash borers at an abandoned cemetery near Dell Rapids.

KSFY-TV reports that the work by Sioux Valley Energy and East River Electric began Friday. The project is the brainchild of one of East River’s foremen, who noticed fallen tree limbs affecting graves in abandoned cemeteries.

The cemetery board has a budget of about $1,500 a year and members say they could not keep the cemetery clean without volunteer help.
