The Friends of Live Oaks group has been doing a wonderful job of preserving the City’s official tree. Many of the trees they hand out were collected by local residents of Shore Drive back in 2005/2006.
The Friends of Live Oaks, together with the Virginia Beach Environment and Sustainability Office, will be giving away about 150 young live oak trees on Saturday October 12th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Linkhorn Annex, 1413 Laskin Road. As in the past, there will be no charge for the trees, but recipients are encouraged to become official Friends of Live Oaks members by purchasing a $10 membership.
In addition to giving away 150 trees, the group will also plant 50 live oaks along Marlin Bay, Shore Drive and Pleasure House Point to celebrate the city’s 50th anniversary
