Florida Arbor Day is Friday, January 19

January is the best month to plant a tree in Florida and so the third Friday of the month has been designated as Florida Arbor Day. What better way to celebrate than to plant a beautiful Florida tree?

People for Trees,Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that strives to create awareness about the importance of a healthy native tree canopy, will host their Annual Florida Native Tree Sale on Saturday, January 27 from 10-2 PM at 3597 Froude Street, North Port.

A wide selection of Florida native trees in 3-gallon containers will be available for only $10.00 each. Choose from the Loblolly Pine, Southern Magnolia, Bald Cypress, East Palatka Holly, Red Maple, Sweetgum, Mahogany, Mulberry, Florida Elm, and the Southern Red Cedar. Receive expert advice on the best trees for your yard and the proper way to plant them.

This is the annual fundraiser for People for Trees and helps to fund their many community events and activities including the monthly Eco-Kids Club for children, the annual North Port Tree Festival, school projects, and community gardens.

For more information and availability of trees call Alice White at 426-9752.

[If you can't make to to Northport consider buying a few native trees at a nursery and plant them in your yard or another suitable place. We all need more tree cover!]
