Terre Haute, Ind. (WTHI) - Volunteers in Vigo County braved the cold weather on Saturday morning. All for a good cause.
120 trees have been newly planted along the National Road Heritage Trail in Terre Haute.
Trees, Inc. and over 150 volunteers spent a few hours planting the trees.
It was the 27th annual year for the event.
Organizers say it's nice having a helping hand to beautify our community.
"We get 150 people to show up at 8:30 on a cloudy rainy morning. So it says a lot about the Terre Haute community to have so much good help show up," said Brian Conley, Vice President of Department of Redevelopment.
Conley hopes members of the community will enjoy the trees along the trail.
