Plant America with Trees: Each One – Plant One

Spring has sprung in Norcross ~ photo by Jolyn Barrow

There's no doubt that a few can accomplish a lot. Our small group of members have proven this. Here's a recap:

2019 - We will add 22 more trees to the GCG list for 2019 
 
2020 - Norcross Garden Club  members planted 184 trees
 
2021 - Members have already planted 7 trees in 2021

The National Garden Club (NGC) initiative to plant 165,000 trees for each year of the 2020-2021 term continues. Project deadline: May 1, 2021

Each member, plant one tree.

Native plants are encouraged, but all trees will be reported.

We are counting all trees planted by you personally.
