Trees Atlanta announced its 16th Annual Holiday Tree Greeting Campaign today.  For just $25 each, Trees Atlanta will plant a shade tree in honor of your loved ones and business associates and send a festive card announcing your gift. Trees Atlanta volunteers will plant the trees for you in barren areas where they are needed most and hope to  plant more than 2,000 oaks, maples and flowering trees through this year’s campaign.  The 2009 Trees Atlanta Holiday Tree Greeting card features a beautiful image by Atlanta nature photographer, Kathryn Kolb (www.kathrynkolb.com).
