Jackson County Extension and the Florida Forest Service have received a donation from One Tree Planted, Superior Tree Nursery, Big Bend Chapter of FNGLA, and Chestnut Hill Nursery of trees to been given away to homeowners to replace trees lost from Hurricane Michael.
On Saturday, September 28 the Master Gardeners will host ReTreeJC2, which is the second donated tree giveaway offered by these volunteers at the Jackson County Extension Office starting at 8:00 AM until the inventory is given out. Each household will receive 2 trees in 3 gallon pots and 4 small seedling trees, on a first come – first served basis. The Jackson County Extension Office is located at 2741 Penn Avenue – Marianna, Florida.
The assortment of donated trees include: Yaupon holly, Sand live oak, Live oak, Baldcypress, Riverbirch, Pignut hickory, Winged elm, Swamp white oak, and Purple leaf plum. There will be approximately 200 trees in 3-gallon pots, so come early to get your choice of trees. While this assortment of trees will certainly not replace what was lost from the hurricane, 100 households will be able to begin the process of adding trees back to their landscape for future generations to enjoy.
