Garden club to donate tree for new forest
In celebration of Arbor Day, the Quononoquott Garden Club, of Jamestown, will support the Rhode Island Tree Council by donating one of the 100 trees that will be planted to create a new forest.
The mass planting will take place at Goddard Memorial State Park located at Ives Road in Warwick, on Arbor Day, April 26.
The goal of the tree council is to create one acre of shade in the "Oaks" section of the park. Planting of the trees will occur between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and there will be an Arbor Day Fair.
