Thomasville-- Despite the chilly weather a crowd gathered at the Old Cemetery in Thomasville to plant a Magnolia tree in memory of veterans. Thomasville puts in between 200 and 300 new trees a year, but today's planting had special meaning to it.

"We look at locations that are appropriate, the garden clubs wanted to acknowledge veterans at this time and of course we're standing next to a memorial for the confederate veterans, and this just appeared to be a good place," said city engineer, John Wood.

For the seventeenth year in a row, Thomasville was named a Tree City USA community by the The National Arbor day foundation for its commitment to community forestry.
