Athens Tree Fair

The 5th annual Athens-Clarke County Tree Fair is going to be held at the Sandy Creek Nature Center from 10:00 to 1:00 on Saturday, November 7. The event will include a tree sale, educational exhibits (planting, pruning, mulching, climbing, composting, etc), vendors offering wood carvings and shrubs, a kid's booth, and free food. There is no charge to attend the
event.

The Community Tree Council is currently offering a presale of discounted trees. Proceeds will benefit the Athens Clarke County Tree Council (a nonprofit dedicated to the conservation of trees in Athens). Oaks, maples, blackgum, magnolia redbud, tulip poplar, and many other species are available for $15-$25. They are in 3-gallon containers. More information can be found at www.athenstrees.com.
