Sapling replaces tree lost in Hurricane Matthew

Savannah, Ga. - April 28, 2017 - In honor of national Arbor Day, the Georgia Ports Authority held a special tree-planting ceremony at Garden City Terminal to replace a historic oak lost during Hurricane Matthew last year.

"As we improve our operations and upgrade facilities, we take every step we can to preserve Georgia's historic, majestic trees," said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch. "The 10-year-old live oak sapling we're planting today is a small example of how the GPA provides for our natural resources today and into the future."
