But the 9-year-old Hazelwood boy was a natural, grabbing a shovel, pivoting and plunging it into soil outside Pittsburgh Mifflin Elementary on what was a gray November morning in the city’s Lincoln Place neighborhood.

By the time K.K.’s in eighth grade, he said the tree would tower over a nearby fence.

“It’s going to grow with me,” he said.

A total of 53 fourth- and eighth-graders gathered Thursday morning to plant seven, new Eastern red cedar trees as part of a program involving a national tree-care company, the local nonprofit Tree Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
