Russell County Arbor Day celebration planned

An Arbor Day free tree seedling give-a-way has been planned for Feb. 21 by the Russell County Extension Office.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. EST and last until all the trees are gone.

It will be at the pavilion at Moon Lake at Idle Hour Park in Phenix City.

The seedlings will be given away by the Phenix City Tree Commission and will include dwarf Japanese red maples, silky dogwoods, eastern red cedars and eastern redbuds.
