|This year Keep Bartow Beautiful will supply 2,000 bareroot seedlings to Bartow County residents. We will offer four different species through our Bartow Master Gardener volunteers at the 5 locations listed above. As our flowering & pollinator selection we will offer the eternally popular Dogwood (white). For visual interest we've selected two species; the River Birch because of it's delicate peeling bark and the Bald Cyprus which is a conifer that acts like a deciduous tree turning a pleasant tan, cinnamon, and fiery orange in fall. As our evergreen we've selected Thuja (or white cedar) which is a much better choice than the over planted Leyland cyprus. UGA Extension program "Trees for Bess". Bartow's Master Gardeners will be handing out these seedlings and dispensing planting advice. So come get a free tree and talk to an expert.
Bartow County, GA is proud to be the home of the State Champion "White Oak" as designated by the Georgia Forestry Commission in September, 2016. Located at Spring Bank, the measurements used to determine status are: circumference 252', height - 103', crown spread - 128', TOTAL POINTS = 387.
We encourage land owners to replace lost trees or plant more trees in order
to help maintain our urban forest. Trees contribute to our urban aesthetic,
prevent "heat island" effect, act as natural filters for water, and
prevent soil erosion.
