Ten years ago in the spring of 2011, the USA and Scotland planted four trees in a symbol of friendship: two oaks and two dogwoods. One of each was planted at the Royal Botanical Garden in Edinburg, Scotland and at the Knoxville Botanic Garden in Knoxville, Tennessee. 🌱🌳🌲This Saturday April 10 we are hosting a small outdoor celebration for the ten-year anniversary of the planting and for the friendship between our nations. It begins at 10:00 at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens on Wimpole ave. We will have a speaker and a musical performance. See you there! #trees4twonations #friendship ... See MoreSee Less
