Henry County Goes Green!

The Dan River Basin Association would like to give a shout-out to Henry County for their recent efforts to spruce up Bassett at the new county motorpool parking lot. County Administrator, Benny Summerlin, wanted to enhance the appearance of the barren parking lot by planting trees. An assortment of Sweet Gums, Bald Cypress, and River Birch have been planted at the site and will buffer noise, create oxygen, provide wildlife habitat, and make 57 Business a much prettier place to drive. The trees were harvested from the county tree farm and planted with assistance from Lois Christenson of Gateway Streetscape. We look forward to seeing these beautiful trees as they leaf out and grow! Way to go Henry County!
