Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines
Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines (B 987) This publication focuses on native trees, shrubs and woody vines for Georgia. It is not our intent to describe all native species — just those available in the nursery trade and those that the authors feel have potential for nursery production and landscape use. Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.
Vegetable Garden Calendar
Vegetable Garden Calendar (C 943) The recommendations in this circular are based on long-term average dates of the last killing frost in the spring and first killing frost in the fall. Every year does not conform to the "average," so you should use your own judgment about advancing or delaying the time for each job, depending on weather conditions.
Your Household Water Quality: Odors in Your Water
Your Household Water Quality: Odors in Your Water (C 1016) Homeowners sometimes experience unpleasant odors in their household water. In many cases, the exact cause of the odor is difficult to determine by water testing; however, this publication provides a few general recommendations for treating some common causes of household water odors.

DeKalb County Department of Planning and Sustainability in partnership with Trees Atlanta, is proud to announce the ReLeaf DeKalb Tree Planting Program.

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved ReLeaf DeKalb, a tree-planting program that partners with Trees Atlanta. DeKalb homeowners will have an inexpensive option to add shade and beauty to their front yard this fall and winter. Residents in unincorporated DeKalb County can have an over story tree professionally planted in their front yard for only $25.00. DeKalb hopes to have 400 trees planted over the first two years of the program, with 100 trees reserved for rights-of-way in commercial corridors and other County-owned properties.
