Nalley Tree Festival, February 9th, 2013
Mark your calendars for Saturday February 9th, when Nalley Decatur hosts the third-annual Nalley Tree Festival, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Decatur Square!
Nalley will be distributing free one-gallon trees during the festival, which will feature a live band, children’s activities, local sustainable artisans, and educational workshops from municipal and environmental organizations.
The Nalley Tree Campaign is a three-year initiative led by Nalley BMW, Nalley Infiniti, and Nalley Nissan in Decatur, Georgia. This spring, the campaign will meet its goal of planting 10,000 trees within the City of Decatur and DeKalb County. The campaign started in 2011 and has proven a tremendous success among partners and locals.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the fulfillment of our goal of planting 10,000 trees in Decatur and DeKalb County,” said Melissa Corey, public relations and communications manager for Asbury Automotive Group, the parent company of Nalley Automotive Group. “Not only have we worked together to make this area a better place to live, but we are going to commemorate this exciting milestone with lots of fun for the entire family.”
The Nalley Tree Festival brings together multiple environmentally-conscious businesses and vendors, including the campaign’s official partners: City of Decatur, DeKalb County, Park Pride, Trees Atlanta, and Keep DeKalb Beautiful.
“The trees in Decatur and DeKalb are the most important natural assets we have,” said Greg Levine, co-executive director and chief program officer for Trees Atlanta. “The Nalley Tree Campaign has been a unique program that has helped to reforest some of the most barren parts of the county. The trees Nalley has planted are an extraordinary gift.”
Festival attendees can also sign up as volunteers for organized group plantings through April. After the festival, the trio of Nalley dealerships in Decatur will continue to distribute free one-gallon trees through the end of April.
