SEMINOLE – The Florida West Coast Resource Conservation and Development Council, in partnership with the University of Florida/IFAS – Pinellas County Extension, The Florida Botanical Gardens and the Champion Tree Project International, will honor Rep. C.W. Bill Young, Thursday, Aug. 19, 2 p.m., by planting a special tree at the C.W. Bill Young University Partnership Center at St. Petersburg College, Seminole Campus.

The event will celebrate the spirit of community, partnership, and collaboration with the planting of a sapling, cloned from a native national champion green buttonwood tree. It will mature to be several stories high, creating shade, homes for wildlife, and a gathering place for students and faculty. We are dedicating this tree to Rep. C.W. Bill Young for his efforts toward improving the quality of life in Pinellas County.

A reception will follow. The campus is at 9200 113th St. Contact Britton Miller at (941) 723-3252 or e-mail flwestcoastrcd@aol.com.

The green buttonwood sapling was grown in the county and cloned from the National Champion Green Buttonwood in Palm Beach, the largest tree of its kind in the continental U.S. The tree is sponsored by Westenberger Tree Service and Pinellas Technical Education Center (PTEC), the tree’s grower.

The Champion Tree Project International (www.championtreeproject.org) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to leading society toward economic and environmental sustainability by protecting, propagating and planting a living legacy of our champion trees – the largest and oldest of their kind.
