Charleston commits to planting 10,000 trees

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Friday is Arbor Day in the state of South Carolina. To celebrate, the city of Charleston committed to planting 10,000 trees within the city limits.

Jimmy Bbailey of the 10,000 Trees Committee said those trees will be planted on seven corridors throughout the City of Charleston: upper Meeting Street, Sam Rittenberg Boulevard, Glenn McConnell Parkway, Savannah Highway, Folly Road, Saint Andrews Boulevard, and Old Towne Road.

"As a grandfather, I can't think of anything else that would be more important as a lasting gift to my grandchildren and to their children to leave live oak trees and red cedars in their honor," Bailey said.
