Historic Tree Program

Combines environmental education with our national heritage.

Touches of greenery and history have been added to local schools throughout the Two Rivers area, funded by a grant from Georgia Power, in an educational effort called "The Famous and Historic Tree Program." Founded by the American Forest Society, the program offers seedlings derived from the homes of historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Students throughout the fourteen county area have taken advantage of this environmental educational opportunity while learning about our nation's history in the process. These students are now caring for Famous and Historic Trees such as the Trail of Tears Rosebud, the Manassas Mimosa and the Juliette Gordon Low Magnolia. Included in the program are framed certificates detailing each tree's significance, planting guides, lesson plans and audiovisuals. More than 7,000 students have participated in this environmental and American Heritage experience.

Conservation Clearing

Conservation land clearing services are now available without environmental damage or liabilities associated with bulldozing and burning.

No matter whether we're talking new homes, businesses or utility infrastructures, land clearing activities are inevitable. Typically, this translates into bulldozers and burning that degrades our environment with silted streams, piled masses of stumps and polluted air quality. Developers, landowners, local governments and utility companies now have an option to clear land without burning, bulldozing or burying debris. It's called the TigerCat.

Developed for rough terrain, the TigerCat is a fuel efficient mulching machine strong enough to reduce huge volumes of trees and brush into environmentally desirable mulch. The unit uses an 8 ft. wide, high speed rotary cutting head to grind brush and trees up to 18 inches in diameter leaving a protective layer of nutrient rich biomass in its path. Its wide tracks make a soft "footprint" protecting soil structure even in damp conditions or uneven terrain.

Whether you're clearing land for a new home or just need firebreaks to protect your existing home or property, do it without the liabilities of sediment and smoke. The TigerCat Service is now available through a cooperative agreement with JPV International.
