Destin Area Chamber of Commerce staff and ambassadors gathered July 8 to celebrate Trees Destin with a ribbon cutting.

The local non-profit organization seeks to conserve and preserve Destinís existing tree canopy, expand the canopy through tree plantings, and offer programs to teach the importance of trees and the best methods for the planting of and caring for trees.

Trees Destin keeps its overhead low so that the vast majority of donations go directly into the cost of tree plantings. For more information, visit, or call 404-664-7536.
