Georgia Arbor Day Tree Celebration and Planting
On March 1, Keep McIntosh Beautiful partnered with McIntosh County 4-H and the Georgia Forestry Commission for a celebration of Georgia Arbor Day at Todd Grant Elementary School. All fourth grade students took part in planting a live oak tree in front yard of the school, and each received a tree seeding provided by Keep McIntosh Beautiful to take home and plant. Community forester Mark McClellan talked with the students about the important of trees in our landscape and as wildlife habitat, how to plant and care for new trees, as well as the special qualities of the Live Oak, the state tree of Georgia. The event was organized by 4-H extension agent Tammy Tyre. KMB director Julie Sowell and board member Jody Martin prepared the seedlings and handed them out to each student at the event.
