The Chattanooga Tree Commission will celebrate Arbor Day at the Glass House Collective on Friday at 2 p.m. with the ceremonial planting of a single tree. This is the first of more than 20 trees that will be installed as part of a Streetscapes project aimed at revitalizing this East Chattanooga neighborhood.
A representative from the Tennessee Division of Forestry will certify Chattanooga as a Tree City community for the 24rd consecutive year. East Chattanooga’s Good Neighbor Network and Glass House Collective’s Board of Director will formally accept the trees.
The public is invited to attend.
The rest of the trees will be installed by volunteers on Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. Anybody wishing to participate in the Saturday planting event will be welcomed. All necessary tools and trees will be provided.
