For the 3rd year, Jeffrey Johns and his Coastal Greenery staff assisted 3rd graders at two Glynn County schools in planting their own trees and answered questions about planting and caring for trees and the value of trees in our lives.
Post it, share it. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.

Kay Cantrell and Anne Popham decorated classrooms at Boroughs-Mollette and St Simons Elementary Schools and read the Lorax to all third grade classes. They also did puzzles and answered questions about trees.
Members of the St Simons Island Public Library staff, Maureen Hersey, Virginia Wayne, Gail Feddersen and Jim Order-Schwalm, donated funds to plant a Live Oak tree as their Christmas gift to each other and the community.
