250K Tree Day in Tennessee
Volunteers will be planting trees across the state of Tennessee on Saturday, February 24th and the deadline to order trees is February 1st by midnight. You can order a packet of five different types of trees for your home, business or land by calling the Cocke County UT Extension Office at 423-623-7531. The "250K Tree Day", is a project of the Tennessee Environmental Council. Each packet of trees will include a Northern Red Oak, Tulip Poplar, Red Bud, Pine and another hardwood. A single tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year. That means two mature trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four! Tree shaded surfaces can be 2045F cooler than surfaces in direct sun, helping homeowners reduce summer cooling costs. And research shows consumers have a 12% higher willingness to pay for goods and services in retail areas that have streetscape greening such as street trees and sidewalk gardens. The trees will be distributed by Keep Cocke County Beautiful on the parking lot of Lowes Store on Crowe Lane in Newport on February 23.
