NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - A nonprofit group is seeking applications for a special Virginia license plate aimed at raising public awareness of the benefits of trees.
Virginia Loves Trees needs to obtain at least 450 applications for the Virginia Loves Trees license plate by the end of December.
Application coordinator Sarah Gugercin tells the Daily Press ( http://bit.ly/uAY1xw) that motorists don't have to wait until their current plate expires before applying for the Virginia Loves Trees plate.
Virginia Tech associate professor Eric Wiseman says trees are vital to communities' sustainability and the quality of life.
