Urban Tree Field Day

Thomas County Extension will conduct an urban tree field day at Cherokee Lake on Friday, August 14th, from 9AM to 11AM. We will meet at the boat ramp and picnic area.

The field day is open to all interested in learning more about our urban tree canopy. The program will consist of tree identification, what type of tree to plant in urban settings, economic and ecological benefits of trees, and also some information on the GPS/GIS tree mapping of Thomasville currently going on. We will have various experts on hand to lead the field day.

Come learn at this hands-on opportunity how to identify trees and how we benefit from trees. This is a great learning event for all. For more information contact R.J. Byrne at the Thomas County Extension Office 229.225.4130.
