The Crossville Tree Board is celebrating Tennessee's 2015 Arbor Day on March 6th, marking the tree-planting season in the Volunteer State. The Tree Board members will be on hand to give tree-planting tips for the more than 3,100 trees they will distribute beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the parking lot of York & Bilbrey at 456 N. Main Street (beside the new New City Hall). Cumberland County Master Gardeners, and volunteers from the staff of Wyndham Resorts will also be present to assist the Tree Board. City Mayor James Mayberry will read a proclamation announcing Crossville's Tree City USA designation; the 12th year the city has earned that designation. Species differ each year, and this year the Tree Board has purchased 12 species to disperse:
Oaks: Chinkapin, Pin, and Willow available
Later in the day, the Tree Board will plant larger trees at the Phoenix School as well as both Stone and Cumberland County High Schools with students helping plant the trees. This has become part of the Arbor Day tradition in Crossville. Site selection is important for tree planting depending on the species. Be sure not to plant tall growing trees under lines, or bushy trees too close to a house. Trees add value and beauty to a homes landscape and provide shade in the summer, which lowers air-conditioning bills. Several species offer food to wildlife and bloom in the spring and show great color in the fall. The trees are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and are usually all gone before 11 a.m.
