Georgia Forestry Commission gives Jefferson grant for planting, UTC assessment; Jeferson, GA

Jefferson aims to spruce up its trees | News |
JEFFERSON - The city of Jefferson can be a shady place, but the city’s Heritage Tree Council is working to make it even shadier.
The tree council, which was launched about three years ago, on Thursday received a $30,000 grant from the Georgia Forestry Commission to enhance the city’s collection of trees.
About $10,000 of the grant is to plant shade trees around a playground used by Boys & Girls Club members, and the rest, combined with $5,000 that the council received in 2008, will go to study exactly how much of the city is covered by a tree canopy.
