Thank you to all that came out to pick up tree seedlings. This was a tough winter and we need to start replanting new trees. We had Kousa Dogwood also know as Japanese Dogwood (it’s in the photo), Bald Cypress, Red Maples and a new hybrid Loblolly Pitch Pine. We handed out planting directions but go to Arbor Day to see what these trees should look like when fully grown.
