    After Tornados ripped through our city, destroying thousands of trees, I’ve been propagating cypress babies and hope to have some our citizens participate. I will also encourage citizens, through our Tornado Recovery FB Page, to plant a pair of trees in memory of Jan 2nd & 22nd – The 2 days of 2 Paths of Destruction.. Any advice is appreciated! Happy Arbor Day!

  • We always celebrate Arbor day by planting trees in our community. Sometimes it just gets so packed that we end up doing it the next month. Either way, I think it is super important to remember how important trees really are.
