Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards Dedicate Landmark Tree at County Office Building
Today is Arbor Day and to celebrate, the Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards presented a small plaque of recognition for the large Pin Oak on the front lawn of the County Office Building on McIntire Road in Charlottesville. Dan Fowley (certified Arborist and member of the Tree Stewards) was present to receive the plaque on behalf of the County. Every Arbor Day the Tree Stewards designate a “Landmark Tree.” Last year, a similar plaque was presented for the American Elm at the County courthouse.

“It is important that municipalities, organizations, and citizens take part in the planting and maintenance of our green infrastructure,” said Dan Fowley, Albemarle County Grounds Superintendent. “By preserving these natural resources, future generations will be able to enjoy the beauty and benefits of these spectacular gifts of nature as well as help keep the planet and the people that live on it healthy.”
