Camp Osborn makes more progress by planting 800 trees
SYLVESTER, Ga. —
Camp Osborn is slowly but surely getting their roots planted again.
Hundreds of thousands of trees were destroyed in the storms last year. More than 800 trees will be planted at the camp by the end of the week.
The trees aren't just there to show how beautiful nature is. It was a major source of income for the camp.
This past year, they've lost thousands of dollars since they didn't have the trees to sell.
"It's been really rough this past year from not having this tree income,” Ranger Eric Ginter said. “Not only this past year, but for the next 15-20 years, we're not going to have the money come in that we would have on a regular basis."
The Boys Scouts will help this weekend to plant some of the trees.
