Arbor Week Tree Give Away Big Success

The Annual Arbor Week Tree Sale was held at the Alabama Forestry Commission Office on February 23rd.  WCNRC members present included Johnna Franks, John Creed, Mike Henshaw, Jim Hughes, Allison Cochran, and Chris Wright.  Over 50 people participated in the Tree Give Away in the first hour alone, and approximately 1,000 trees were given away.  The Arbor Week Tree Give Away will continue at a slower pace until the supply of seedlings is exhausted.  Johnna prepared information sheets on each species of trees.  Additional photos from the sale are in this photo album.
