Want to do your part to help replace trees knocked down for development?
Pembroke will be selling $1 willow oak saplings on Feb. 21 to celebrate its recent naming as a 2019 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.
Pembroke City Clerk Alex Floyd said the city’s Downtown Development Authority budgets $250 annually for Arbor Day activities and that covers the trees, which are purchased from Georgia Forestry.
This is the 16th straight year Pembroke has been named a Tree City by the Arbor Day Foundation.
There are approximately 15 trees in the city that are on the state’s Landmark and Historic Tree Registry.
Trees can be bought from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Harn Center during the North Bryan Chamber’s Chili Cook off.
