The Arbor Day Foundation has designated Chipley as one of several cities with the title of "Tree City USA."
More than 100 Northwest Florida students did their part to make their hometown "greener."
Youngsters from the fifth grade at Kate Smith Elementary School used their "green thumbs" to plant trees at Chipley's Falling Waters State Recreation Park.
The program involves planting oaks, maples and other vegetation native to the area.
Since Arboy Day Observances vary from state to state, Alabama will have its Arbor Day activities during the last week in February.
