Georgia Grove encourages individuals and communities to “plant your legacy” and increase Atlanta’s tree canopy
Thanks to Katherine for passing along the following information about a new way for families to get involved replanting trees in Atlanta:
I wanted to share info on a new social networking community for tree enthusiasts called The Grove (www.AmericanGrove.org/thegrove). The site launched this spring to encourage families to plant more trees in their neighborhoods, and we have our own community on the site – the Georgia Grove (http://www.americangrove.org/ga/).
The goal of the site is to inspire people to plant trees to counteract our shrinking urban tree canopy. The Grove helps potential tree planters get started by including a tree match tool that pairs tree meanings with life events — such as the birth of a child — or to honor the memory of a loved one. The site also shares tree care and planting tips and articles about sustainable living. Visitors to The Grove can even upload pictures with captions of trees they planted.
I hope this site can serve as a fun tool to help us keep Atlanta green.
