Friday is Arbor Day across Georgia, and several events are scheduled to celebrate the occasion.
In the Pleasant Hill neighborhood, a program is slated for 10 a.m. at the community garden, located off Craft Street near Interstate 75. The celebration includes tree plantings as well as singing by the Pinegate Angels and the Central High School Chorus.
Also at 10 a.m., there will be an Arbor Day ceremony in South Peach Park, 200 Murray Road Extension, in Fort Valley.
The Georgia Forestry Commission and Macon Area Habitat for Humanity are joining together for another observance at 621 Melvin Place in south Macons Lynmore Estates neighborhood. As part of a build day there for a Habitat home under construction, volunteers will plant a white oak tree about 1 p.m. The oak being planted was donated by Athens-Clarke County and is from the well-known tree that owns itself there.
Keep Warner Robins Beautiful will be giving away free tree seedlings on Feb. 23 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Wal-Mart store on Booth Road.
