“The Grove” Goes National « Sustainable Community Forestry:
Admit it. You love social networking sites. You also love trees. What to do? Join The Grove, the nation’s first social networking site devoted to tree planting and protecting urban tree canopy. The Grove (which started here in Georgia as a partnership between the Georgia Forestry Commission, the Georgia Urban Forest Council and the US Forest Service) is going nationwide – starting with the Southern States. Residents of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia may now become members of The Grove.
Grove members can share stories, photos and videos with others in their community and across the country about the trees in their lives. Looking for the perfect tree for that special occasion? The Grove’s search feature can help you choose the perfect tree for special events including births, marriages and graduations. The site also offers information about tree planting, care and benefits.
