Free seedlings and tree planting demos will be available Feb. 15 

Residents are invited to celebrate Georgia Arbor Day by attending a tree planting ceremony at The Orchard at Chattahoochee Pointe (5790 Chattahoochee Pointe Dr.) as well as planting their own trees. A limited number of free Swamp Chestnut and Dogwood tree seedlings will also be available during the event for residents to take home and plant.

 

The free event – hosted by Keep Forsyth County Beautiful and the Forsyth County Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners – will take place between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15. House Rep. Todd Jones will be delivering the Arbor Day proclamation and Forsyth County Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners will be hosting a “How to plant a tree from bare roots” demonstration.

 

“By planting their seedlings, residents are leaving lasting gifts for future generations to enjoy,” said Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright. “We are thrilled to give participants a chance to learn insight from experts so they can watch their trees’ progress for years to come.”

 

Following the planting of the seedlings, Keep Forsyth County Beautiful will host a Trees of the Riverbank walk along the Chattahoochee River at the park. 


In the event of rain, Keep Forsyth County Beautiful will still be distributing seedlings to residents during the event. All other planned activities may be cancelled depending on weather conditions.
