ACTC participates in Tree Week

October 13, 2022

ASHLAND, Ky. – Ashland Community and Technical College participated in Tree Week last week, with over 100 Fraser Fir seedlings being distributed to faculty, staff, and students across all three ACTC campuses. 

All recipients also received a complimentary tree facts sheet. 

Tree Week is aimed at helping us join together to appreciate and support our trees. Tree activities were in conjunction with the Urban Forest Initiative's Tree Week. 

"Tree week was a huge success at ACTC, and we thank the Urban Forest Initiative for all their support,” said Ashley Vanderpool, Director of Career Services.  “Each event had an excellent turnout, and we received a lot of positive feedback. The tree seedlings were adopted quickly and a total of 101 trees found a new place to put down roots in our local community.”

She added, “I also want to personally thank the owners at Redrock Farm, a Christmas Tree Farm in Chelsea, VT. The owners provided us with excellent customer service, tree planting tips, and speedy shipments. Their farm helped us make this all possible.”
