Public invited to tree planting ceremony at Texas College


On Thursday, Oct. 20, a tree planting ceremony will be held at the Texas College campus in north Tyler. Attendees are asked to meet behind Texas College’s Daniel Hall located at 2404 N. Grand Ave. a few minutes before 10 a.m.


The ceremony will dedicate the ten 30-gallon trees that were planted by volunteer groups and Texas College students earlier this week to current students and alumni in beautification of the historic campus.


The trees were a generous donation from TXU’s Energy Committed to Community Growth Program and this event is made possible by the collaboration of Texas College faculty and students, Texas Trees Foundation, TXU Energy, Tyler Trees Committee, the City of Tyler’s Keep Tyler Beautiful Board and Code Enforcement officers.


For more information about this event, please contact Tyler Wright with the Texas Trees Foundation at (214) 278-6687.  Representatives will be available during the ceremony to answer and discuss the importance of trees and TXU and Texas College’s collaboration.
