SAVE OUR TREES
Two live oaks that sparked a protest on Wilmington Island are now stumps, but their destruction has prompted more action on behalf of the county's tree canopy.
appreciate the canopy of Live Oaks along Johnny Mercer Blvd. The Wilmington Island Hester and Zipperer is hosting the SAVE OUR TREES petition. Please go by the store and support the trees whose shade has fallen upon our great-grandparents, so that it may, one day, fall upon our great-grandchildren as well.
"We the undersigned, angered by the cutting of two live oaks on Wilmington Island, wish to inform you we will do anything within our power to prevent the destruction of any more canopy trees on county rights of way anywhere in Chatham County."
