SFA’s Arthur Temple College of Forestry, the Garden Capital of Texas and the Nacogdoches Independent School District are partnering with Green Forests Work to plant more than 100 trees of various species at three Nacogdoches ISD properties.
The event, scheduled for February 26 and 27, is organized by Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture graduate student Hannah Angel. Angel, a native of Kentucky, developed a relationship with Green Forests Work during her time as an undergraduate at the University of Kentucky.
“Green Forests Work plants trees primarily in the Appalachian region, but through partnerships GFW is accelerating its mission and planting trees throughout the entire nation, including Texas,” Angel said.
Trees purchased by GFW from the Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful tree nursery will be planted at the Nacogdoches ISD Agriculture Science Center and Technical Training Center on Friday, February 26, and at Nacogdoches High School on Saturday, February 27.
“These trees will benefit NISD schools by providing more shade for students and teachers and by promoting a healthier learning environment,” Angel said.
