February 12 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EST
Join us at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame in Macon on February 12 as we present Georgia Tree Council’s first quarter educational program and, in partnership with the Georgia Forestry Commission, the State Arbor Day Event, when Georgia Tree City USA communities, Tree Campus USA colleges and universities, and Tree Line USA utility companies are recognized and honored.
A highlight of the program will be a talk by Jim David, retired superintendent of the Ocmulgee National Monument, who will chronicle the recent success getting it designated as the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historic Park, site of “17,000 years of continuous human habitation.” Then we’ll get “Back to Basics with Trees,” with talks on “Proper Planting, Proper Pruning, and What Doesn’t Work,” with Georgia Forestry Commission’s Seth Hawkins, Arbor Equity’s Dan Bauer, and City of Alpharetta Arborist David Shostak. Lunch is included. The Georgia Sports Hall of Fame is located at 301 Cherry Street, Macon, GA 31201.
