Dawson Co. created jobs by planting trees | AccessNorthGa DAWSONVILLE - Dawson County's Parks will have a new appearance after spring through a project that will not only beautify, but also create jobs. The Dawson County Board of Commissioners received assistance through the Chestatee-Chattahoochee Resource Conservation and Development Council with a partnership and local government to plant 15 new trees throughout the county. The trees are two to three inch diameter trees, so they will have immediate benefits to provide shade for playgrounds, storm water runoff and assist with energy conservation throughout the county. The County used money from the Georgia Forestry Commission's Georgia's Growing Green Program, funded by federal economic stimulus money.
