ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Volunteers for Keep Albany-Dougherty County beautiful had an early wake up call to plant trees.

Arbor Day was Friday, communities across Georgia were encouraged to plant trees.

Volunteers from Darton College, Job Corps, companies, and state and local agencies, joined forces to plant 42 trees in the median in the 100 block of Ingleside Drive.

"We have to realize that with construction we as human beings put a lot of roadways and buildings up and cut a lot of trees, and we've put a lot of trees in and to replenish them," said Judy Bowles, Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful.

Planting on Ingleside Drive began last year and this completes the project.

Keep Albany-Dougherty County beautiful encourages citizens to call them to help select next year's planting location.
