Friday of last week we, at the Clay County Forestry Planning Committee, gave away trees for our Arbor Day Project. Darlene Lovelady from the elementary school was the first person to come by the Forestry Commission Office to get trees to plant. Josh, Mr. Brown, and Nick worked hard sorting and identifying trees we gave away.
Today I drove to Centre to meet with the Alabama Treasure Forest Association Committee planning this years conference. We are planning a great meeting providing good information to private forest landowners.
Centre Chamber of Commerce is excited about hosting the convention and are working to make this meeting a success. The meeting was at the Gadsden State College branch in Centre. Great facility!
After I got back from the meeting in Centre I went to Bowden Grove to get some pictures for Melissa Moeller with the American Forest Foundation in Washington DC and to planted some Beauty Berry plants on the property. Tomorrow, hope is to burn 125 acres there if the weather will cooperate.
