Planting dogwood trees on Prince Avenue
Athenians are invited to lend a hand for planting dogwoods along Prince Avenue this Saturday, February 23. Volunteers from several groups will be planting 25 trees in the right-of-way between Pulaski Street and Milledge Avenue as part of the Community Tree Council's Trees for Tomorrow program. This planting effort is the second in this program's first year, following the first planting at the Athens-Ben Epps Airport. Prince Avenue has a history of dogwood trees being planted and replenished that started in 1948 with trees from Hugh Haralson Gordon Jr.
