Rainsville Tree City Board plants trees at Plainview

On Tuesday, March 9, the Tree City Board planted five Water Oaks at Plainview High School. This is a joint effort between the City of Rainsville Tree Board and the DeKalb County Board of Education.

The groups wanted to replace the trees because the old trees in front of the school were removed in 2009.  

The annual is called Aqua Oaks after the trees that stood in front of the school for decades.
