The 2018 edition of Bring One for the Chippers is in the books with 137 trees dropped off at Home Depot off Hicks Drive and Turner McCall Boulevard in Rome. Dozens of trees were dropped off last week ahead of the event and 137 trees were dropped between 10 a.m. and noon Saturday. Donors received a seedling as well as arbor advice.

Local anglers took all the trees to help build fish habitats in area lakes.
