ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Technical College marked Arbor Day by planting a tree to commemorate the college's 50th anniversary. Members of the horticulture class planted a Live Oak on the campus next to Building A.
Albany Tech has been named a tree campus USA every year since that program began in 2008. Each year they add another tree to their campus. This year they chose a Live Oak which is Georgia's state tree.
"The Live Oak symbolizes strength, it symbolizes prosperity, its an evergreen oak so the leaves always stay green which symbolizes ongoing and future prosperity and the strength of the tree I'm sure you've seen the Live Oaks and how big they can get but they're magnificent, gorgeous trees that live for a long long time," said Environmental Horticulture Major Patrick Jenkins.
Participants in today's ceremony were given pine saplings to take home and plant. Georgia Forestry Officials say the state has lost much of its tree canopy, especially in metro Atlanta, and it's important to preserve the forests for future generations.
