A total of 7-8 trees will be planted at both Kiwanis Park and Riverside Park. The holes for planting will already be dug, and the trees will be ready for their new homes. Indigenous trees including Red Bud, Dogwood, and Service Berry will be provided by Mills Greenhouse.

Those interested in joining the tree planting efforts are invited to visit the event’s page on the Keep Carter County Beautiful website at www.kccbtn.org/events for more information and a map of the locations. Let’s come together and beautify Carter County for generations to come!
