Arbor Day

East Texans line up to collect free tree seedlings being given away at an Arbor Day celebration. The giveaway was a partnership between Angelina Beautiful/Clean, Lowe’s, the Texas A&M Forest Service and Sterling Solutions.

Angelina Beautiful/Clean has 2,400 native hardwood tree seedlings available today as part of its annual Arbor Day giveaway. The seedlings will be available on a first come, first serve basis starting at 9 a.m.

“We have a huge turnout each year, and supplies typically run out fast,” said Emily Thornton, the AB/C director. “Community members all across Angelina County attend this event.”
