    I have a question.

    Does anyone within this office know if there are any agencies in Walker County that will plant trees on your property? Particularly in areas affected by bark beetles?

    The reason I ask is because I was told they assist with similar matters in the state of Louisiana. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
