Despite today being another cold day, many residents took advantage of Calhoun County’s annual Tree Giveaway Day today. Several conservation partners got together this year to help residents add more greenery to their properties and to the county.
Before the giveaway began this morning, dozens of people were already lined up outside waiting for the trees to be unloaded. District Coordinator Jennifer Yates explains why this giveaway takes place during this time of year.
The tree giveaway was sponsored by The Forestry Community, Choccolocco Creek Watershed, Choccolocco Park, and the City of Oxford.
