Keep Kingsport Beautiful and Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Homes, along with the City of Kingsport, will host a tree planting on this Friday at noon at Preston
Forest Park, Suffolk Street. 

This planting recognizes those who have been honored or remembered through the Tree Fund.

The Tree Fund began in 1986. Since then, well over 650 trees have been planted
within our community, and thousands of people have been recognized through this

Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Homes sponsors this community event. Their participation allows more trees to be planted each year as a living tribute to those recognized. Keep Kingsport Beautiful coordinates the Tree Fund program, while the City of Kingsport
provides the labor and mulch.
