Baton Rouge, La. — October 1, 2006. Baton Rouge Green today announced that it will host the Fall Tree Sale. This event is one of more than 100 regreening efforts throughout the country being promoted during October, which has been declared National NeighborWoods Month by the national nonprofit, the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT). Baton Rouge Green is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.
