More of Geneva's giant oak thanks to a donation from one man

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- There could be a lot more oak trees in Geneva all thanks to a donation from one man.

Buds and Blossoms owner Bobby Boone has planted 600 acorns.
He is donating the time and resources to grow these oak trees for Geneva to use as a fundraiser for the community.

Boone and members of the Geneva community collected around 600 acorns from the Centennial Oak tree at Fowler park.

If all goes well, in Fall of 2019 there will be 500-600 baby oak trees for sale.

For Boone, he couldn't be happier to give back to the community that he grew up in and is proud to call home.

Boone says "We went to a Geneva sports banquet some of the guys that have done really well in sports. They've come back and they're given awards and my wife went with me and she said, 'Bobby, I see what you mean. This is really special.' All these people are so much behind the community and involved, and I just want to be a part of that".
