Tree Giveaway Part of Recovery Campaign

Winston County Master Gardeners were busy on Friday as they spent the day at the Louisville Coliseum handing out free tree seedlings to Winston County residents. The program was a joint effort between the City of Louisville, the Mississippi Forestry Commission and the National Arbor Day Foundation.

The program is part of the Mississippi Tree Recovery Campaign in response to the April 28, 2014 tornado that hit our area. Six varieties of trees were available including maples, redbuds,black gum and three varieties of oak.

The Louisville Parks and Recreation Department and Winston County Master Gardeners hosted the giveaway.
