Stimulus funds will help Athens grow canopy - Athens, GA

Stimulus funds will help Athens grow ||
Workers are preparing to plant up to 150 new hardwood trees with $30,000 in federal stimulus funding the Athens-Clarke Landscape Management Division received late last year.
Landscape Management officials hired Watkinsville-based Lotus Landscape Design to plant half of the trees by Jan. 31.
The trees are expected to help cool developed urban areas, control erosion and slow the flow of stormwater runoff, according to Andrew Saunders, community forestry coordinator for landscape management.
