Jonesborough will be a distribution location for trees. The event will take place on Saturday, February 24th from 10am- noon at the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center through the Keep Jonesborough Beautiful Advisory Council.
Participants will be given a bundle of tree seedlings to take home and plant comprised of Wild Plum, White Pine, Redbud, Red Oak and Tulip Poplar. In addition to the tree giveaway, information regarding the importance of trees to the environment and proper tree planting location will be available.
