State-Wide Observance Of Dogwood
Week To Begin On January 27th
The first statewide "Dogwood
Week" in North Carolina will be
sponsored by the Garden Clubs of
North Carolina during the week
beginning January 27. The purpose
of the observance is to promote
the planting of dogwood in the
The dogwood, which is the offi
cial flower of North Carolina was
designated as such by the General
Assembly and is said to flourish in
all sections of the state. It is
snowy with its white blossoms in
the Spring and brilliant with its
berries and foliage in the autumn.
The State Department of Conser
vation and Development is co
operating with the Garden Club in
sponsoring the event, by supplying
seedlings for shipment to those
who desire them through the state.
Anyone wishing to plant dogwoods
may secure them from the depart
ment by writing to P. A. Griffiths,
Assistant State Forester, Education
Governor Gregg Cherry has com
mended the Garden Club for spon
soring Dogwood Week and has
urged all North Carolinians to help
in its observance by planting the
state flower. He will officially open
the week by planting the first tree
on the grounds of the state capi
tol. One of the most notable plant
ings of dogwood in the United
States is at Valley Forge in Penn
sylvania, where about 50,000 trees
have been planted in the National
Park. Before the war years ago
the city of Atlanta launched a dog
wood planting campaign, and now
it is known as the Dogwood City
because of its thousands of trees.
The Garden Club has invited I
other organizations and clubs to
help in promoting Dogwood Week
by planting as many trees as possi
ble, and it 'is hoped by the sponsors
that the week will become an an
nual affair in the state.
