Marie Arick, Liberty County Extension Service
Florida’s Arbor Day is celebrated each January, and there is no better way to commemorate this than to plant a tree! Once again, Liberty County Extension is partnering with the Florida Forrest Service to provide free trees to residents of Liberty County. Genevieve Printiss, Liberty County Forester, has secured 500 one-gallon trees with the varieties including oaks, red maple, elm, and black gum.
Trees provide shade, habitats and food for wildlife while also aiding to prevent soil erosion and aesthetics for your yard or landscape. These trees are chosen due to their ability to thrive in Florida’s milder climate. Proper planting instructions will accompany trees and Ms. Printiss will be available for any questions. Liberty County 4-Hers and volunteers will be assisting with loading of trees as part of this community service project.
So, join us on Friday, January 27 from 3 to 5 pm ET, at the Liberty County Extension Office, 10405 NW Theo Jacobs Way, Bristol, select a few trees and celebrate Arbor Day. There is a limit of five trees per household.
