Lake Worth to host its annual Festival of Trees:
LAKE WORTH — Got shade?
South Florida residents might not think of the need to boost the tree canopy around their houses on a cold day in January, but by April the need for sun-blocking foliage becomes apparent.
Too, flowering trees and shrubs help make a home beautiful and can enhance its value.
On Saturday, Lake Worth residents and visitors can browse a variety of trees and shrubs — including palms, oaks, mahogany, fruit trees and flowering hibiscus — during the Fifth Annual Festival of Trees.
'We're going to have roaming experts all day,' said Gael Silverblatt, chairwoman of the city's Tree Board.
