Ellaville a Tree City for 27 years
The city of Ellaville has again been recognized as a “Tree City.”
Chief Ranger Brent McCarty and his forestry rangers, along with the Ellaville city employees have planted trees in the city for 27 years in observance of Arbor Day.
A joint work team between the city of Ellaville and McCarty’s team has demonstrated special care and maintenance for the tree planted over the last almost three decades.
This year Chief McCarty and his rangers, Ellaville Street Department, and City Manager Lynne McChargue were all on hand to plant crepe myrtles in the City Cemetery.
Arbor Day was established by the Nebraska Legislation in 1872. Planting trees soon spread over the United States.
Georgia ‘s Legislature established Arbor Day in 1941, to be observed on the third Friday in February. It’s been observed in Georgia for 78 years.
