2015 Annual Tree Giveaway

 

Harlan County Farm Bureau’s Annual Tree Giveaway was April 23. As a service to our members, we gave away 1,000 trees including: Kentucky coffee tree, American chestnut hybrid, northern red oak, shortleaf pine, white oak, black walnut, hazelnut, pecan, persimmon and mulberry. The trees were distributed outside the Harlan County Farm Bureau Frank Couch Building. Hundreds of members took advantage of this benefit; it was a total success.
