Doraville, GA, February, 8, 2017 – The Post Reports, Contributed – The City of Doraville is looking for volunteers to help plant trees in observance of National Arbor Day. On Saturday, February 18, Doraville city staff and local residents will be planting 40 new trees along Winters Chapel Road. This project is a joint effort between the City of Doraville and Trees Atlanta. In addition, a donation provided by QuikTrip helped double the number of trees being planted.
For logistical and planning purposes, the City is asking those wanting to volunteer are asked to email Carlos Reyna with the Parks & Rec Department at carlos.reyna@Doravillega.us by February 15. Registrants will be sent a confirmation and more information like what to wear.
The City says volunteers are asked to meet in front of Jasmine Apartments on Winters Chapel Road at Winters Wood Road promptly at 9:00 am. Trees Atlanta will be on hand to offer assistance and instruction. On-street parking will be available.
“This effort is the first step to evolving the streetscape along this route, starting at Doraville’s new gateway signage, passing through MARTA bus stops, multi-family residences, and single-family homes, and ending at the Oakcliff Road intersection,” the City adds.
Doraville received its official “Tree City USA” designation in 2009 and since that time has planted over 130 trees throughout the city around municipal buildings, bridges, parks and in various neighborhoods. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.
