Annual Seedling Giveaway Featured 13 Different Trees

by Ramonica R. Jones

From Black Walnut to Green Ash to Laurel Oak, more than a dozen different types of trees were available at Wednesday's annual seedling giveaway in Lufkin, but Pecan always seems to be the most popular.

The City of Lufkin, Angelina Beautiful/Clean, and the Texas Forest Service partner each year to promote Arbor Day. Many people were looking forward to this year's event because so many trees were lost during Hurricane Rita.

Almost 2,000 trees were available, along with a pamphlet on how to take care of them.
