Red oak seedlings (1)Horticulture students in Brad Parton’s class check on red oak seedlings that the classes grew from acorns collected on the grounds of Lincoln County High School. The trees are being sold for $15 each, and the proceeds will be used to help pay for the program, potting soil and other needed materials. Pictured are (from left) Mason Dorning, Houston Welch and Ty Boyd. Later this year, the students will also be planting seeds for American chestnut trees on campus provided by Virginia Tech.
