Harlan County Farm Bureau Hosts Annual Tree Giveaway - Kentucky Farm Bureau

Harlan County Farm Bureau Hosts Annual Tree Giveaway

Harlan County Farm Bureau’s Annual Tree Giveaway distributed 1,400 trees to its members and the public.  On April 26, we set up from 1-6pm and April 27 from 9-noon.  Hundreds of happy members received trees and instructions on planting.  Everyone that attended received the Harlan County Farm Bureau Local Member Discount Brochure, the KFB State Discount and Benefits Brochure and the Yellow $5,000 Reward Sign. 

Eight varieties of trees were available, including the White Oak which was chosen to support the White Oak Initiative.  The White Oak Initiative works to ensure the long-term sustainability of America’s white oak and the economic, social and conservation benefits derived from white oak dominated forests. While currently white oak growing stocks are sufficient to meet demand, forest monitoring, and long-term projections indicate problems in maintaining high-quality white oak regeneration.  White oak is critical to many wildlife species, and to industries making forest products such as furniture, flooring, cabinetry, barrels, as well as for recreational activities like hunting, generating billions of dollars to local economies throughout the white oak region.
