Plant a Tree in Forsyth this Arbor Day

Georgia Arbor Day will officially be celebrated on Friday, Feb. 15.

Celebrate Georgia Arbor Day by planting a free red bud or red cedar seedling from Keep Forsyth County Beautiful.

Beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16, a limited number of free tree seedlings will be available while supplies last at the three Forsyth County Convenience Centers:

  • Coal Mountain Convenience Center, 3560 Settingdown Road
  • Old Atlanta Convenience Center, 3678 Old Atlanta Road
  • Tolbert Street Convenience Center, 351 Tolbert Street

Forsyth County Master Gardeners will also be at the sites to answer questions and provide planting information.

“Trees provide a lasting gift to future generations,” said Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright. “They improve the surrounding area and are good for the environment. We are excited to offer these tree seedlings to residents.”

For those of you picking up a free tree seedling on Feb. 16, you'll be asked to provide a brief description of the planned location of the tree.

“We welcome residents to keep us updated on the progress of the planted trees by sending us photos or information about how they have enjoyed their trees,” Wright said.

Georgia Arbor Day will officially be celebrated on Friday, Feb. 15.
