Between January and March 2010, Public Works will plant a Rusty Blackhaw anywhere between your house and any publicly or privately maintained road when you agree to water the tree three times a week for one year. A Rusty Blackhaw is a small, native tree that has a showy display of white flowers in the spring.
Tree applications are available on the Leon County website until January 31st. Click on 2010 Adopt-A-Tree Program under “Spotlights” or or from the Leon County Department of Public Works office at 2280 Miccosukee Road. More details are on the website or contact Leon County's Public Information Officer Jon D. Brown at 850.606.5300.
