Cookeville Tree Board Donates To TTU

Tennessee Tech University President Bob Bell and Guy Zimmerman, area forester and chairman of the Highlands Redbud Celebration Committee, recently planted one of 500 Redbud tree seedlings given to the TTU campus. The Cookeville Tree Board donated the seedlings to the university as part of the 2010 Highlands Redbud Celebration, an annual spring celebration starring the Redbud Tree with emphasis on the benefits of trees of all kinds to Putnam and surrounding counties. The celebration highlights the beauty of the blooming trees as part of the attraction for many regional festivities. The seedlings will be planted across the campus to showcase the spring blooms.
